Special Issue: Healthy Aging

Deadline for submission of articles: December 1, 2022

This special issue will consider review, mini-review, commentary, or perspective articles focused on providing novel insights on the psychophysiology of body-mind techniques, prevention and intervention strategies in the field of healthy aging, including exercise, mindfulness, nutrition, brain-gut connection to enhance physical, cognitive, and mental health and prevent aging-related disorders. A few original research articles will also be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Editors.

Special Issue: Vascular Contributions to Healthy Aging and Dementia

Deadline for submission of articles: January 15, 2023

This special issue will consider Review, Mini-review, Original Research, Opinion, Commentary, or Perspective articles focused on the link of vascular contributions to aging and dementia, including Alzheimer Disease. This research topic is to promote biomedical research on better understanding age-related changes of vascular and glymphatic systems and to facilitate research exchanges across different fields (e.g., imaging, molecular biology, pathology and clinical correlation and treatments) on this topic.

Special Issue: Liquid-liquid phase separation in health and disease

Deadline for submission of articles: July 31, 2023

Liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) and the ensuing biomolecular condensates/ membrane-less organelles are currently gaining acceptance as a potent mechanism of diverse biological activities and are of great interest to the scientific community. The aberrant phase separation brought on by disease-associated mutations and post-translational modifications is linked to various diseases, including cancer, viral infections, and neurodegenerative diseases. Our knowledge of the LLPS is still in its infancy despite notable advances. This special issue will consider and showcase the high-quality research work providing novel insights on the Liquid-liquid phase separation in health and disease. The editor welcomes submissions of Original Research, Reviews, Mini-reviews, Opinion, or perspective articles related to this topic.

Special Issue:The miscobiota-immunity axis in age-related disorders

Deadline for submission of articles: June 30, 2023

The interest in the human microbiota, which supports a variety of physiological processes, including digestion and the synthesis of vital metabolites, has increased dramatically in recent years. A critical role of the microbiota is the interface with the immune system favoring its normal development and modulating its responses versus any nature pathogens. However, in the case of dysbiosis or immune dysregulation, this Microbiota-Immunity axis can significantly influence the pathogenesis of several diseases, including autoimmune, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and cancer. In addition, the changes in the immune system associated with age (named immunosenescence), has been gathering interest in the scientific and health-care sectors alike. Given the rising average age and the associated failure to raise healthy life expectancy, the growth in its recognition is essential. Finally, it is well recognized that the gut microbiome is a causative factor in ageing-related health loss and in numerous non-communicable diseases in all age groups. Some age-linked and disease-linked compositional and functional changes overlap, while others are distinct. So, the goal of this Special Issue is to gather various publications (especially review, editorial, commentary, opinion and perspective) focusing on the role of the Microbiota-Immunity axis in the all human diseases aging-associated and especially the non-communicable diseases.

Special Issue:Inflammation and brain disease: update

Deadline for submission of articles: June 15, 2023

Inflammation is the primary pathological feature of various brain diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, viral infections, stroke, traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis etc. Microglia, astrocytes, and peripheral immune cells are key regulators of inflammatory responses in the central nervous system. The interaction among these cells is also very complicated and important for mediating neuroinflammation. A better understanding of the roles of these cells in inflammation after brain disease is essential for developing effective therapies. This special issue will consider Review, Mini-review, Original Research, Opinion, Commentary, or Perspective articles providing novel insights on glial cells and immune cells mediated neuroinflammation in brain disease.
