Special Issue Information
The lipid class of molecules constitutes a large set of bioactive compounds that play a role in general physiology as well as in multiple diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, disturbances in lipid metabolism have been associated with certain types of cancer. In this Special Issue, you are invited to highlight new insights into the physiological and pathologies roles of these interesting biomolecules. Special attention may be given to the potential of these molecules not only as therapeutic targets for pharmacological development, but also as biomarkers in disease (outcome) prediction. Research papers as well as reviews dealing with the role of lipids in health and disease are welcomed.
Dr. Menno Hoekstra
