Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Dietary protein is central to maintenance of whole body and, particularly, skeletal muscle homeostasis in health, ageing and disease. This special issue is aimed at attracting reviews that deal with the functioning, and mechanisms of this relationship. We invite topical reviews in all areas including but not limited to: health, ageing, disease burden, rehabilitation and dietary protein. We welcome acute or chronic nutrition study focuses, studies of protein requirements, and mechanisms of efficacy in these scenarios. We also welcome reviews solely focusing upon mechanistic influences of dietary protein. We are accepting of narrative reviews and systematic/meta-analyses.
