We are delighted to announce a Special Issue on “Aortic Aneurysm and Dissection: Heterogeneity and Molecular Mechanisms”.
Aortic aneurysm and dissection are devastating diseases that have high risk for aortic rupture, leading to uncontrolled bleeding and death. Aortic aneurysm and dissection have complex pathophysiological features. Despite progress in our understanding of potential molecular mechanisms, there are still many unanswered questions and conflicting findings requiring clarification. Improved understandings of the pathological heterogeneity, subcellular mechanisms, and regulatory networks triggering the disease development and progression are essential for exploring potential therapeutic targets. This Topical Collection of Biomolecules aims to highlight the pathological heterogeneity and molecular mechanisms of aortic aneurysm and dissection. Studies addressing the diversity and function of pathogenesis in arteries derived from the aorta are also of interest.

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. Biomolecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2100 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.
