About this Research Topic
The arterial wall contains macrophages that serve important functions in remodeling and dendritic cells (DCs) that organize immune responses. Recent research shows enormous diversity of macrophage and DC phenotypes that have important consequences for vascular function, disease initiation, progression and resolution. This topic will focus on the lineages and plasticity of vascular macrophages and DCs.
