Immune Homeostasis and Inflammation: Regulating Protection and Pathology

Call for Papers

Our understanding of immune homeostasis is constantly evolving, shaped by new discoveries such as innate effector cells, T-cell subsets, and novel cell signaling mechanisms. Unraveling the cellular and molecular mechanisms limiting chronic inflammation is critical to advance our treatments for allergic and autoimmune disorders. We invite authors to submit original articles as well as reviews examining cellular interactions and signal transduction that provide the framework for regulating immune homeostasis and controlling inflammation in either humans or animal models. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Differentiation signals that give rise to innate immune cells and T-cell subsets
  • Regulating cellular migration by cytokines, chemokines, and adipokines
  • Specific aspects of immune dysregulation by conditions such as obesity
  • Novel therapeutic strategies to suppress chronic inflammation

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/iji/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/iji/ihome/ according to the following timetable:
