We are pleased to announce the recent appointment of Prof. Geoff Laurent and Dr Cecilia Prêle as Section Editor and Deputy Section Editor respectively, for the newly established Tissue Regeneration section of Fibrogenesis & Tissue Repair.
Fibrogenesis & Tissue Repair is an open access journal that publishes novel insights into the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases characterized by chronic wound healing and fibrogenesis.
The journal is comprised of six sections and the new Tissue Regeneration section welcomes articles that explore the molecular pathways involved in cell therapy and tissue regeneration. Translational studies that report new developments in technologies relating to stem cells and their delivery to treat various clinical conditions are also welcome. We would encourage you to submit an article for consideration via the journal’s online submission system.
Submissions are of course also welcome to the journal’s five established sections and with the new ‘Browse by Section’ functionality it is possible to filter articles by section, according to your area of expertise or interest:
- Cardiovascular Disease – Professor Ian Dixon
- Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease – Professor Massimo Pinzani
- Pulmonary Disease – Professor Cory Hogaboam
- Renal Disease – Professor Michael Zeisberg
- Rheumatology and Connective Tissue Disease– Professor David Abraham
Finally, we have launched a new article type; the Smart Card. Smart Cards are designed to be a quick reference point for authors and researchers, summarising established information on for example animal models, signalling pathways and historical perspectives, in a table format. The first smart card by Lisa Longato describes different models of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. We hope that Smart Cards will be particularly helpful for younger investigators approaching the different research areas encompassed within the scope of Fibrogenesis & Tissue Repair.
