Diabetes mellitus (DM) has reached epidemic proportions around the world and is a major public health problem. DM-related complications affect nearly every organ system in the body. The vascular endothelium lines all blood vessels and the heart and serves as a conduit for blood and a barrier between the intravascular space and organs and tissues in the body. The endothelium plays a critical role both in normal physiology and in the pathophysiology of various diseases. In DM, hyperglycemia directly affects the endothelium, resulting in the dysfunction of vascular endothelial cells that leads to a myriad of signaling locally and distally throughout the body. This Special Issue seeks to gather the latest information on how DM affects endothelial signaling and function at the cellular and whole organ level and how these findings can be used to identify therapeutic strategies to treat DM.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
