Biomarkers in Lung Diseases: From Pathogenesis to Prediction to New Therapies

The American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology is seeking manuscripts on the topic of biomarkers in lung disease, in recognition of the central role that biomarker research plays in bridging basic and clinical research in human lung disease. The study of protein, lipid, genetic, and genomic biomarkers of lung disease is an important tool for understanding the biology of human lung disease. Both candidate biomarker approaches and high dimensional platforms can provide new insights into pathogenesis and confirmation of the clinical relevance of experimental findings. This call for papers requests high-quality studies of human disease biomarkers in patient samples and tissues that enhance our understanding of the pathogenesis of human lung diseases such as pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary fibrosis, acute lung injury, COPD, acute lung injury and lung cancer. A number of reviews by experts in the field will also be solicited.


All papers will be reviewed promptly, thoroughly, and fairly by members of the Editorial Board and guest reviewers who are recognized experts in this field. Accepted manuscripts will be published on line within two weeks after acceptance under a distinct heading and will receive special attention and handling. Only those papers not requiring extensive revision will be published under this highlighted topic. 


Authors should indicate in their letter to the editor and in the online submission form under “Manuscript Type” that the submitted manuscript is in response to a special Call for Papers. Accepted manuscripts will be published under a distinct heading and will receive special attention and handling. Only those papers not requiring extensive revision will be published under this call. If you currently have a manuscript on this topic that has already been submitted and would like it to be included in this special Call, please contact Dr. Sadis Matalon, Editor-in-Chief via e-mail at amcever@emory.edu
