Cardiovascular Immunometabolism

Dear Colleagues,

The immune and metabolic systems are known to be intricately connected at both the cellular and systemic levels. Metabolic dysregulations associated with cardiovascular diseases can lead to rewiring of immune responses and tissue homeostatic mechanisms that promote disease. This crosstalk has been shown to reprogram immune cell function in the setting of atherosclerotic vascular disease, heart failure, myocarditis, heart transplant rejection, as well as conditions that increase cardiovascular disease risk, such as obesity and type II diabetes. Unraveling the complex networks of metabolism and inflammation in cardiovascular diseases offers substantial therapeutic promise, but advances toward this goal will require further understanding of the multi-level interactions between the metabolic and immune systems, the distinct metabolic alterations in the major immune cells that accompany disease, and key metabolites and their receptors amenable to targeting. This special issue of Immunometabolism aims to provide a series of articles covering all aspects of how immunometabolism impacts upon cardiovascular diseases and their co-morbidities, and how it may be manipulated for therapeutic benefit. We welcome submissions of both original research articles and topical reviews related to this subject.

Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.

All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.

Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
