Stem cell research is among the most exciting, attractive, and rapidly growing fields in biomedicine. Besides the popularity of stem cell research at the bench, stem cell therapy has become a bustling interest in the clinic and industry. In Vietnam, biomedical scientists have studied stem cells since 1995. From that time on, Vietnamese scientists have obtained significant achievements in stem cell research and therapy, especially with regards to stem cell therapy for disease treatment. This report aims to provide an overview of stem cell research and therapy from 1995 to date. Stem cell research activities were collected by questionnaire and analyzed based on publications and projects about stem cells in various databases, including Pubmed, Web of Science, Google Scholar, Embase, as well as from national scientific information. The results showed that stem cell research and therapy significantly increased from 2009 to date with greater publications on stem cells and clinical applications. With this growth rate, Vietnam is poised to continue developing in the stem cell industry. The potential goal for Vietnam is to advance as one of the countries in the Southeast Asian region and in the world that continues to push the frontier in stem cell research and therapy.
