  • Nutrition & Metabolism

Current, but not exclusive, interests are metabolic effects of diet composition, interactions of macronutrients, effect of nutrients on gene expression, metabolic control and compartment models, nutritional effect of hormones, and genomic analysis of dietary phenomena. Recent events that provide the rationale for Nutrition & Metabolism are 1) awareness of an epidemic of obesity, diabetes, lipidemias and other related diseases, 2) the sudden increase in popularity of diets, such as low carbohydrate diets, to achieve weight loss, and 3) a renewed interest in intermediary metabolism accompanied by the development of new tools and techniques for genomic and metabolic analysis.
