Scope

 

Vascular Biology will consider submissions of basic, mechanistic, clinical and translational research and reviews, covering:

  • Physiological processes: vascular development, vasculogenesis, angiogenesis; vascular / endothelial heterogeneity; mechanisms of vascular/endothelial homeostasis; vascular stem cells; determinants of linage specification and maintenance
  • Repair processes in health and disease: wound healing; vascular regeneration
  • Vascular diseases: vascular inflammation, angiogenesis in disease (including tumor), wound healing; vascular malformations; micro and macro angiopathies; micro and macro vascular diseases; endothelial cell dysfunction
  • Molecular pathways: mechanisms of gene regulation, transcription, epigenetics
  • Microvascular pharmacology: therapeutic strategies including targeted drug delivery; molecular response of the microvasculature to treatment
  • Metabolism: endothelial cell metabolism
  • Translational aspects: imaging, cell-, gene- RNA based therapies, novel targets
  • Bioengineering technologies in vascular research
  • Genetic models: articles providing the detailed characterisation of genetic animal models used across the field
  • Study protocols: articles which detail optimized procedures which can be immediately applied by other researchers.
