Special Issue "Clinical and Research of Genetic Cardiomyopathies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2021.
Inherited cardiomyopathies are a clinically heterogeneous group comprising cardiac structural and functional changes in the heart caused by DNA mutations. The phenotypic spectrum of genetic cardiomyopathies is broad, in terms of penetrance, expressivity, and symptoms, which can be either confined to the heart or part of generalized systemic diseases. Often, these disorders result in heart failure, and the prognosis of affected patients remains poor despite recent advances in the management of these diseases. Therefore, there is room for improvement of the clinical outcomes by identification of new novel molecular defects and pathways, screening and molecular diagnosis, as well as novel therapeutic and preventive strategies.
In order to have a more complete comprehension of the pathophysiology of inherited cardiomyopathies, this Special Issue on “Clinical and Research of Genetic Cardiomyopathies” is focused on both clinical science as well as basic and translational research on this field. In particular, original and up-to-date review articles are solicited regarding (epi)genetic aspects, disease models, and molecular mechanisms of genetic cardiomyopathies. Moreover, newer diagnostic tools and therapeutic approaches are also of interest.
Overall, the main goal of this Special Issue is a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art on this important matter.

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 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. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2200 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.
