Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) aims to publish valuable contributions to all aspects of research on energy metabolism and obesity, ranging from basic studies to clinical applications. We welcome studies on the omics approaches, epigenetic regulation, cellular and molecular mechanisms and therapeutics of human obesity, and relevant in vivo and in vitro experimental models using cellular, molecular, biological, chemical and immunological approaches.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Insulin, glucose metabolism and obesity;
  2. Lipid metabolism and obesity;
  3. Energy metabolism and weight control;
  4. Obesity, metabolic health and omics;
  5. Epigenetic regulation of energy metabolism in obesity;
  6. Molecular mechanism of insulin resistance and obesity;
  7. Regulatory mechanisms of obesity-related metabolic disorders.

We also welcome reviews on these subjects, particularly those that challenge existing concepts.

Prof. Dr. Po-Shiuan Hsieh
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
