Journal of Angiogenesis Research is an open access journal that
publishes original research and timely reviews on recent advances in
the understanding of the processes responsible for neovascularisation
and pathological angiogenesis.

Dissemination and implementation of new knowledge concerning
angiogenesis as a key process which occurs during pathological disease
progression will have a significant impact on the treatment of these
diseases. Excessive and damaging angiogenesis occurs in diseases such
as cancer, diabetic retinopathies, age-related macular degeneration
and atherosclerosis.

In other diseases such as stroke and myocardial infarction,
insufficient or improper angiogenesis results in tissue loss and
ultimately higher morbidity and mortality. The field of angiogenesis
research includes areas focussed on elucidating both normal and
pathogenic angiogenic signalling mechanisms, clinical and pre-clinical
trials of novel anti-angiogenic agents, and imaging of vascularization
in solid tumours, metastasis and in cardio/cerebrovascular disease.

The list of topics includes but is not limited to:

* Cellular and molecular signalling in angiogenesis
* Current and novel imaging techniques
* Nanotechnology applied to angiogenesis
* Angiogenesis in cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis
* Stroke revascularization
* Vascular tissue engineering
* Diabetic retinopathies
* Neurodegenerative disease
* Tumour angiogenesis
* Developmental angiogenesis/Early cardiovascular development
* Wound healing
* Lymphangiogenesis
* Role of extracellular matrix
* Inflammation and angiogenesis
