Special Issue Information
The proper control of metabolism is required for essentially every basic biological process. From recent work, it is becoming more evident that many human diseases involve abnormal metabolic states. Altered metabolism at the cellular level contributes to several serious diseases including Alzheimer's disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. This awareness leads us to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie metabolism and its associated pathology. This Special Issue focuses on investigating the connection between metabolic perturbation and diseases, characterizing metabolic disorders, understanding how they compromise tissue function, identifying metabolites that can be potentially used as biomarkers, and designing therapies to restore normal metabolism and improve health.
