Metabolism and Metabolic Disorders

Combines examination at cellular and organismal levels of the process by which energy is provided, stored, and utilized for vital processes and activities. Research encompasses many aspects of molecular, biochemical, genetic, and physiological effects of metabolic processes especially in diseases that critically involve metabolism, including cancer, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and liver diseases.
