Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As we are all aware, the incidence of CVDs is increasing globally at an alarming rate despite significant advancements in CVD research. The understanding regarding cellular and molecular signaling and immunology has immensely contributed to unveiling novel pathological mechanisms underlying various CVDs. However, the pace of transition of basic research outcomes to clinical arena has been limited. Interestingly, the emergence and promise in translational research offers tremendous avenues interconnecting basic research with clinical arena. Hence, we have decided to launch a Special Issue on “Cardiovascular Translational Research” focusing on the ongoing advancements in diverse aspects of translational research in CVDs.

In this Special Issue of IJERPH, we would like to invite high-quality contributions from CVD researchers across the globe. We believe that your expertise and reputation in the field of cardiology will be an asset to this Special Issue and to our readers. It will be greatly appreciated if you could submit your research contribution for publication in our Special Issue.
