Translational Stroke Research

ISSN: 1868-4483 (Print) 1868-601X (Online)


Translational Stroke Research covers basic, translational, and clinical studies. The Journal emphasizes novel approaches in order to help translate scientific discoveries from basic stroke research into the development of new strategies for prevention, assessment, treatment, and repair after stroke and other forms of neurotrauma.

Translational Stroke Research focuses on translational research and is relevant to both basic scientists and physicians, including but not restricted to neuroscientists, vascular biologists, neurologists, neuroimagers, and neurosurgeons. The Journal provides an interactive forum for the dissemination of original research articles, review articles, research reports, letters, comments, and research protocols, in stroke and stroke related areas. Its distinguished editorial board is made up of leading stroke researchers and physicians from North America, Europe, and Asia.

CALL FOR PAPERS: "Phenotypic Transformation of Smooth Muscle in Cerebrovascular Disease"
Guest editor: William Pearce (Loma Linda University)
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 31, 2013
Smooth muscle can differentiate into multiple stable phenotypes that respond dynamically to physiological and pathophysiological influences.  Whereas the phenotypic transformation of smooth muscle is well recognized in the context of arteriosclerosis, it may also contribute to the development of cerebral aneurisms, Alzheimer’s disease, brain trauma, stroke, and intracranial hemorrhage.  The goal of this special issue is to review exciting recent advances in understanding of the role of phenotypic transformation of vascular smooth muscle in the development of cerebrovascular disease.
