A number of cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary artery disease, hypertension, aneurysm, and stroke, have a multifactorial aetiology with both genetic and life-style factors. Recently, population-scale genetic analyses have uncovered many genomic loci associated with these diseases. However, for most of these loci, the biological mechanism linking the genetic variants and disease risk remains unknown, hindering therapeutic translation. Functional studies of relevant genetic loci using molecular, cellular, and in vivo approaches could potentially provide a better understanding of the pathogenesis of these diseases and identify causal genes, which may point to novel therapeutic targets and facilitate drug development. This Special Issue provides a forum for research in this area, such as that on functional genomics and other omics, as well as molecular and cellular mechanistic studies, translational research, and methodology development studies. We invite the submission of original research papers as well as review articles.

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. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
