Cellular Lipid in Health and Disease presents a comprehensive and systematic coverage of the various roles lipids play in human biology.

 This book is organized in four parts covering the foundational concepts of lipid biology all the way to the therapeutic opportunities they present. The first part is dedicated to the basic concepts of cellular lipid, the roles it plays in the cell, structure and physiology, regulation mechanisms, storage, and utilization. The second part is focused on lipid metabolism, covering the organelles involved in lipid trafficking, metabolism in aging, cholesterol homeostasis, lipid droplets (LDs), and lipid oxidation. Part three is dedicated to the roles lipids play in specific disease states including renal, metabolic, cardiovascular, and fatty liver diseases. Other conditions include cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and the intricate relationship between cellular lipids and autophagy. The final part covers therapeutic opportunities, including drug carrier systems, modeling lipid metabolism, and prevention therapeutics.

Cellular Lipid in Health and Disease is a complete reference targeted at graduate students and early career researchers in cell biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology. Research physicians can also benefit from the foundational content and links to pathologies and therapeutic opportunities.
