From the Editor:

Max Buja, Editor


May/June 2012 Issue (Volume 21, Number 3)

The next issue of Cardiovascular Pathology will cover an eclectic range of topics addressing aspects of human disease and experimental models of pathobiology. A summary of the articles and topics is shown below. Our Elsevier publisher, David Sampson, has proactively given us the capability of publishing additional pages through the rest of 2012 in order to reduce the time from manuscript acceptance until publication. Therefore in the May/June 2012 issue we will publish 97 pages of print and online text, instead of the usual 64 pages, as well as 6 pages of online only material. This will result in publication of manuscripts accepted through early September of 2011, thereby reducing the queue time to less than 10 months. This is good news for authors and potential contributors to Cardiovascular Pathology.

Best regards,
