    It is my pleasure to commence spring, the season of growth and renewal, with the introduction to the second issue in 2011 of Journal of Cardiovascular and Disease Research. This issue covers a variety of subject matter ranging from invited reviews on the aromatic hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) pathway and cardiovascular disease to the Progression of inflammation and diabetic retinopathy, to three original research articles, three clinical case reportbased studies, and a review of a book series on heart development and regeneration. We continue to receive submissions that are diverse and novel and hope that our readers continue to use JCDR as their primary resource for the most up to date information in the field of cardiovascular disease research.
