Macrophages influence blood vessel development during growth or tissue repair, and also during tumorigenesis. They are of increasing interest to angiogenic researchers and thus the basis of a new thematic series in Vascular Cell.
The importance of macrophages due to their close physical association with blood vessels is highlighted in an introductory editorial, “Large eaters” meet blood vessels: a new thematic series on macrophages and angiogenesis.
Experts already working in this emerging field have published the following articles in the ‘Macrophages and Angiogenesis’ thematic series:
Researchers in this field are encouraged to submit their work to this thematic series, to be published alongside additional commissioned pieces. Please indicate in your cover letter that you would like to be considered for the series. The series Editor, Jan Kitajewski, welcomes pre-submission enquiries by email.
