Cardiovascular disease remains a major medical burden throughout most of the world. Despite the underlying complexities involved, development of novel strategies for treating cardiovascular diseases, encompassing abnormalities of the heart and blood vessels, relies strongly on the identification of cellular and molecular mechanisms for treating these disorders. This represents a major challenge for researchers. This Special Issue of Molecules will address the complex fundamental problems underlying cardiovascular disease as they relate to both prevention and treatment. We welcome manuscripts encompassing multifaceted aspects of cardiovascular disease including physiology, pharmacology, and biochemistry with particular emphasis on cellular and molecular phenomena. Both comprehensive experimental studies and review articles will be considered for this Special Issue.

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.
