Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have significantly advanced our understanding of cardiovascular biology and pathology. MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNA molecules that play a pivotal role in post-transcriptional gene regulation. Emerging evidence has underscored their central role in cardiovascular health, as they are intricately connected to cardiac development, function, and pathological responses. Altered miRNA expression profiles have been implicated in numerous cardiovascular conditions, including diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, heart failure, and myocardial infarction, among others. These small RNA entities may serve as potential biomarkers and provide new targets for therapeutic intervention, thus opening a new chapter in cardiovascular medicine. This special issue, titled “MicroRNAs in Cardiovascular Diseases”, aims to highlight the intricate interplay between miRNAs, their regulatory functions, and their implications in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Research articles, reviews as well as short communications are preferred. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office to announce on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. Please visit the Instruction for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) in this open access journal is 2500 USD. Submitted manuscripts should be well formatted in good English.
