From exercise to aging, metabolism plays a central role in normal physiology. Metabolic imbalances contribute to major diseases such as obesity, cancer, and diabetes. Our new volume Metabolism and Disease combines some of the most stimulating work on metabolism and its dysregulation.

The book’s 44 chapters are based on presentations by researchers at last year’s Cold Spring Harbor Symposium on Quantitative Biology. Contributors review the latest advances in our molecular understanding of energy consumption, storage, and homeostasis.  Topics include cell signaling and gene regulation in metabolic control; fat metabolism and its regulation; circadian clocks and aging; apoptosis and autophagy; and cancer.
