The Encyclopedia of Cardiovascular Research and Medicine offers researchers 250 state-of-the-art articles covering every aspect of cardiovascular research and medicine, including fully annotated figures, abundant colour illustrations throughout, video and audio content, as well as links to supplementary data sets and references. With contributions authored and edited by the top experts in the field, the Encyclopedia of Cardiovascular Research and Medicine is the most reputable and easily searchable resource of cardiovascularfocused basic and translational content for students, researchers, clinicians, and teaching faculty across the biomedical and medical sciences. The panel of authors chosen from an international board of leading scholars renders the text trustworthy, contemporary and representative of the global scientific expertise in these domains. The thematic structuring of sections and in-depth breakdown of topics encourages user-friendly, easily searchable chapters. Crossreferences to related articles and links to further reading and references will further guide readers to a full understanding of the topics under discussion. The Encyclopedia of Cardiovascular Research and Medicine is an unparalleled one-stop resource exploring all major aspects of cardiovascular research and medicine.

Key features

  • Comprehensive coverage of every aspect of cardiovascular medicine and research: Offers readers a broad, interdisciplinary overview of the concepts in cardiovascular research and medicine with applications across biomedical research. Chapters will be of benefit to readers both in a research context as well as in a clinical context
  • Reputable, foundational content: Graduate students in disciplines related to cardiovascular disease (genetics, cancer, immunology, cell biology, molecular biology) will learn "enough" about disease and normal physiology in order to conduct their research. Undergraduate pre-med students will benefit from exposure to disease pathogenesis; articles will assist them with their course work, term papers, and dissertations. Non-cardiovascular researchers working in peripheral areas will go to the concise explanations of key issues and background reading suggestions in a given area, in order to work on a new project or to develop a new line of research. Practicing clinicians (including cardiologists and noncardiologists) will use the encyclopedia as a quick, reliable "refresher" course on the molecular basis of cardiovascular disease so that they can understand the molecular events that antedate or accompany the development of related or multi-system diseases (such as hypertension and diabetes) in a given tissue or organ system, or related to a group of symptoms
  • Multi-media enriched color-illustrated text: Multimedia content will include high quality images, graphs, tables, audio and video content that will greatly enhance both the reading and learning experience. Readers will benefit from reliable, easily-searchable content and fully annotated color images and videos which increase comprehension of concepts for students and researchers alike
  • Exhaustive resource with cross-referencing of all key articles and linked references by leading scholars: Provides readers with a "one-stop" resource for access to information written by world-leading scholars in the field, with easy cross-referencing of articles to promote understanding and further research
  • Thematic organization of chapters in sections and ordering of chapters from simple to more complex content will facilitate readers' choices of which content areas to browse quickly and what to study in greater depth, if needed. This structuring of the content will allow readers to find the answers they need quickly


The Encyclopedia of Cardiovascular Research and Medicine is a comprehensive translational reference primarily serving students at upper undergraduate and graduate level. Secondary audiences will include established academics and clinicians involved in the research and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. By studying how cardiovascular diseases are studied at several levels (from the molecular level to the level of the individual patient), readers will gain important new insights into the fundamental nature of these diseases and the possible approaches to their pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
