Aims and scope

Lipids in Health and Disease is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of lipids: their interaction with proteins, (bio)chemistry, (molecular) pharmacology, (molecular) toxicology, natural products chemistry, role in health and disease, in addition to the synthesis of new lipid compounds, and enzyme systems involved in lipid metabolism.

Lipids in Health and Disease is aimed at all scientists, health professionals, and physicians interested in lipids. Lipids are defined herein based on their broadest sense and include cholesterol, triacylglycerol, fatty acids, phospholipids, sphingolipids, glycosphingolipids, remnant cholesterol, inositol lipids, second messenger lipids, and other storage and bioactive forms of these molecules. Other topics of interest include enzymes and synthetic machinery that are involved in the metabolism of various lipids in cells and tissues and various aspects of lipid transport. In addition, the journal also publishes research that investigates and defines the role of lipids in various physiological processes, pathology, and disease. In particular, the journal aims to bridge the gap between the bench and the clinic by publishing articles that are particularly relevant to human diseases and the role of lipids in the management of various diseases.
