Interests: dyslipidemia associated with obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease and its relationship to the pathogenesis of these disease states; application of lipidomics to the early diagnosis, risk assessment and therapeutic monitoring of these most prevalent diseases
Obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are part of a disease continuum involving metabolic dysregulation. These metabolic diseases represent a growing health burden on most countries and are the focus of much research. Metabolomic studies have the potential to inform on the altered metabolism preceding, or resulting from, these chronic diseases. Such studies can provide insight into the pathogenesis of disease, identify new biomarkers for disease risk stratification and/or new therapeutic targets. Here we call for manuscripts addressing all aspects of metabolomic studies into these chronic metabolic diseases.
