Renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS) blockers are the cornerstone of the treatment of cardiovascular disease and nephropathy. While there are currently four types of RAAS blockers (renin inhibitors, ACE inhibitors, AT1 receptor antagonists and mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists), there have been many exciting new developments as well as alternative RAAS targets identified. Recent investigations have revealed a range of unanticipated extrarenal actions of aldosterone, as well as detailed insight in the genetic causes of primary aldosteronism.
This Special Issue will present a selection of contributions from the two-day RAAS2016 Symposium (http://www.congre.co.jp/raas2016/) convened by Presidents Prof. Sadayoshi Ito (Sendai) and Prof. Jan Danser (Rotterdam) in Tokyo 23–24 September, 2016, immediately prior to the 26th Meeting of the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) which will be held in Seoul, Korea.
All speakers presenting a paper at this conference can submit a manuscript for publication. For further information contact the Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences 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 1800 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.
