The review articles and original contributions clearly demonstrate the increasingly recognized importance of mitochondria and the SR in cardiac pathophysiology and the progressively heightened understanding of interactions between both organelles. We hope that this issue will serve to update the knowledge of cardiovascular scientists in this rapidly moving field, stimulating new research that will not only elucidate the many unanswered questions in the field but will also contribute to reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease.
