Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The kidney plays a central role in the normal physiologic regulation of our cardiovascular system through not only the removal of waste products, but also intrinsic regulatory systems that maintain homeostatic blood volume, blood pressure, and tissue perfusion, including the maintenance of fluid volume and sodium balance. As such, injury to the kidney has wide-ranging implications for cardiovascular health. These include, but are not limited to, impacts on the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system, sympathetic nervous system, natriuretic/neuropeptide system, and inflammatory mediators, all of which inextricably link the kidneys to cardiovascular health and disease. This Special Issue is dedicated to improving our understanding of the unique cross-talk between the kidneys and cardiovascular system in both homeostatic and pathophysiologic settings and the implications of this research for public health. Thus, in addition to the basic science to clinical translational work that is fundamental to uncovering the complex relationship between the kidneys and cardiovascular system, we are interested in highlighting the related dissemination and implementation science efforts aimed at fostering evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies that can effectively reduce the significant morbidity and mortality associated with cardio-renal impairment.

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. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
