Cardiovascular epigenetics

Section information

Section Editor : Ronan Murphy
Associate Editor: Gianluigi Condorelli

The impact of epigenetics in cardiovascular disease is now emerging as an important player at different levels from etiology to therapeutics. This section publishes original epigenetic research and reviews in all cardiovascular medical specialties from both animal model and human studies. Research that links epigenetic regulation with cardiovascular risk factors, biomarkers and subclinical cardiovascular diseases will also be included in this section.
