This focused issue on “The Effects of Demographic Factors on Cardiovascular Biomarkers” is edited by Dr. Fabian Sanchis-Gomar, Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, University of Valencia, INCLIVA Biomedical Research Institute, Valencia, Spain.
Dr. Sanchis-Gomar has published more than 190 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and participated more than 100 national and international congresses. His main areas of research include cardiovascular research, particularly arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) as well as cardiovascular damage and cardiac fibrosis/remodeling associated to exercise as well as in arrhythmias, specially focusing on molecular mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias.
