This collection is no longer accepting submissions.


Cardiovascular Diabetology is calling for submissions to our Collection on Functional roles of non-coding RNAs in cardiovascular diabetology. Non-coding RNAs have recently emerged as fundamental players in a number of physiologic and pathologic processes. We are interested in considering manuscripts exploring key aspects of non-coding RNA in basic science as well as in clinical practice, for instance examining their applications as reliable biomarkers of disease and their employment as therapeutic tools.

About the collection

Cardiovascular Diabetology is calling for submissions to our Collection on Functional roles of non-coding RNAs in cardiovascular diabetology. Non-coding RNAs have recently emerged as fundamental players in a number of physiologic and pathologic processes. This Collection, edited by Prof. Gaetano Santulli, MD, PhD, is open to both original articles and systematic reviews focusing on non-coding RNAs in the field of cardiovascular diabetology, with the ultimate goal to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview on this intriguing topic. We are interested in considering manuscripts exploring key aspects of non-coding RNA in basic science as well as in clinical practice, for instance examining their applications as reliable biomarkers of disease and their employment as therapeutic tools.
