Blood vessels are a prerequisite for normal development, tissue growth, and repair as they provide nutrients, remove waste products, and transport cells to distant sites. Blood vessels arise through two processes: vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. Due to its crucial role in physiological and pathological conditions, angiogenesis has been extensively studied and is now recognized as a promising therapeutic target in various pathological settings. Furthermore, blood vessels are essential in developing engineered tissues for regenerative medicine. Despite their quiescent state, ECs retain their angiogenesis competency since they can respond to an angiogenic stimulus imbalance. Excessive or insufficient neovascularization is characteristic of several pathologies. Consequently, a fine regulation of angiogenesis is necessary for human physiology to maintain homeostasis. Recently technological advancements have allowed a deep understanding of the mechanisms supporting angiogenic events, EC crosstalk with the microenvironment, and identifying new therapeutic targets.
This Special Issue aims to summarize the current knowledge and cutting-edge research on angiogenesis in human diseases. Translational studies are particularly welcome.Prof. Dr. Stefania Mitola

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Translational Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
