Special Issue "Role of Dysfunctional Adipose Tissue in the Pathogenesis of Multiple Organ Injuries"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2022 | Viewed by 1087
Interests: insulin resistance; glucose transport, adipose stem cells, adipose tissue, adipogenesis, obesity and metabolic diseases
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) aims to address all aspects of the most recent research on molecular mechanisms linking dysfunctional adipose tissue to an array of health problems, including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, fatty liver disease, neurodegenerative disorders, and cardiovascular diseases. Understanding the mechanisms linking dysfunction adipose tissue to unhealthy obesity could potentially lead to identifying novel therapeutic targets better able to manage the adverse cardiometabolic outcomes of obesity.
The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Dysfunctional adipose tissue and beta-cell wellness: an ineffective combination.
- Impact of dysfunctional adipose tissue depots on the cardiovascular system.
- Role of adipose tissue dysfunction in the onset of obesity-related hypogonadism.
- Adipose tissue inflammation and pulmonary dysfunction in obesity.
- Mechanisms linking excess of adipose tissue to increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases.
- Dysfunctional adipose as risk factors for the development of dermatological diseases.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
