Endocrinology & Metabolism

A section of Journal of Clinical Medicine (ISSN 2077-0383).

Section Information

The endocrine system includes the pancreatic islets and other endocrine cells of the digestive system, thyroid, parathyroid, hypothalamic/pituitary gland, adrenal, and gonadal endocrine cells, as well as other hormone regulatory pathways involved in other processes such as aging and pregnancy. Metabolism involves all the chemical processes at the cellular level that lead to the regulation of energy and relevant cellular substrate pathways, such as those of proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates. Both Endocrinology and Metabolism encompass a broad field from basic molecular and cellular research through clinical care and some of the most relevant public health issues in current times. Articles are welcome from a broad range of disciplines and approaches ranging from clinical medicine to basic science.

This section welcomes outstanding contributions in the fields of Endocrinology and Metabolism.
