"I believe that thirty million of these animalcules together would not take up as much room, or be as big, as a coarse grain of sand." Antonie van Leeuwenhoek ("the Father of Microbiology", 1632–1723)
"I don’t have a solution, but I do admire the problem." (www.smart-words.org)
With these quotations, I hope to inspire your contribution to this Special Issue, which is entitled "Gut Microbiota: Its Role in Diabetes and Obesity". We call for manuscripts appraising current and emerging understanding of this topic. The manuscripts may comprise preclinical (basic and translational) and clinical original research, reviews and meta-analyses, opinion, and comments (including personal experience). We invite all researchers, e.g., microbiologists, molecular biologists, ecologists, immunologists, physiologists, medical doctors, and artificial intelligence investigators, to contribute to this topic. If you are doing state-of the-art research that involves any aspect of gut microbiota and in your opinion is related to diabetes and/or obesity, you may contribute to this Special Issue.
We all admire the topic, so let us contribute to its solution.
Please submit directly via MDPI Microorganisms, stating in your cover letter that you are submitting to this Special Issue, or email your pre-submission queries if you are not sure about the suitability of your work.
Prof. Dr. Elena Barengolts
