Temporo-mandibular joint Special Issue: The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) connect the jaw to the skull and are the most used joints of the human body. TMJ disorders (TMD) are severely debilitating and a significant public health issue. Therapies for TMD have mixed success so there is a great need for new research into the TMJ to prompt therapies that are more effective. The eCM journal is facilitating this by producing a special issue focused on the TMJ, which serves as a platform for the publication of manuscripts describing novel basic science on TMJ development, growth, homeostasis, pathologies and therapies.
Submission deadline: 31st of March 2023

Gene therapy for musculoskeletal applications Special Issue: The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how revolutionary treatments based on gene therapeutics have helped overcome a once-in-a-century pandemic and have given new momentum to gene therapy research for a myriad of applications. In musculoskeletal applications, this might provide an opportunity to overcome some of the well-established problems with therapeutics, such as recombinant bone morphogenetic proteins. This special issue will include a series of articles focused on viral and non-viral gene therapy approaches for delivery of DNA and RNA therapeutics to repair musculoskeletal tissues including bone, cartilage, ligament, tendon, meniscus, intervertebral disk and peripheral nerve.
Submission deadline: 31st of July 2023
