About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to collect selected contributions to the XII International Symposium on Vasoactive Peptides, held in Minas Gerais, Brazil, on 21st-23th November 2019. The International Symposium on Vasoactive Peptides is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, clinicians and other scientists to present and exchange new data and ideas. The first edition of the symposium was held in Ouro Preto in 1991. From the interactions started at that meeting chymase and the B1 receptor were cloned years later by Urata and Pesquero, respectively. These findings were obtained under the supervision of Professors Ganten and Bader. This fact illustrates the potential of this symposium for generating new ideas and knowledge. The symposium will provide young scientists a venue to expand their knowledge of recent advances in the field, as well as, discuss and receive feedback on their research. The meeting is also designed to foster interactions and constructive networking with peers and established scientists.
The selected articles will highlight recent advances in the knowledge of vasoactive peptides on cardiovascular and smooth muscle pharmacology; clinical and translational physiology; exercise physiology, and in particular on the role of the renin-angiotensin system in inflammation. Participants of the Symposium are welcome to submit papers which could be original research papers, review articles, including mini reviews. All of the submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.
Keywords: Inflammation, Vascular and Cardiac Physiopharmacology, Autonomic Control of Cardiovascular System, Exercise, Imunopharmacology
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
