Thyroid Hormone and Tissue Repair

Call for Papers

Thyroid hormone is known to be critical regulator of tissue growth and differentiation during development with an important role thereafter in the regulation of metabolism and body homeostasis. However, recent advances in the field of thyroid hormone research have revealed its implication in stress response and, thus, its reparative/regenerative action on damaged tissue. On the basis of this new evidence, we invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate continuing efforts to understand the mechanisms of the novel effects of thyroid hormone on tissue repair after injury. This may have important therapeutic implications.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Thyroid hormone receptors and DNA damage
  • Thyroid hormone and cardiac and vascular remodeling
  • Thyroid hormone receptors in peripheral nerve regeneration
  • Thyroid hormone and survival of injured neurons
  • Thyroid hormone and skeletal muscle regeneration
  • Thyroid hormone and bone growth and repair
  • Thyroid hormone and pancreatic islets function and survival
  • Thyroid hormone and its role in the injury of lung, kidney, and liver
  • Thyroid hormone and wound healing
  • Thyroid hormone and radiation damage
  • Thyroid hormone and cellular aging
