Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special issue “Novel Insights into the Mechanisms of Vascular Injury and Repair” is intended to collect the most exciting or provocative findings in the field of vascular injury and repair. Vascular injury might occur traumatic but is also found in many diverse diseases like atherosclerosis, ischemic cardiomyopathy, pulmonary arterial hypertension, venous thromboembolism, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes, renal or cerebral diseases, Alzheimer disease, and many age-related pathologies. Classically, for the investigation of vascular repair, the endothelium is put in the centre of interest. More recent data shed light into the heterogeneity of endothelium and endothelial progenitors and fascinating interactions with immune cells, circulating progenitors, glia, pericytes etc. have been identified. Our understanding of signalling molecules in vascular injury and repair is constantly evolving. All studies contributing on the organism, organ, cell, and molecular level to increase our knowledge in the field are highly welcome submissions for this Special issue.

Dr. Kay-Dietrich Wagner
Guest Editor
