About this book

The book covers areas of cellular physiology and metabolism that are of interest to scientists involved in research in diabetes and metabolic diseases. Some chapters of the book are specifically research-oriented, as all the authors are actively practicing either bench or clinical research in the area. Nonetheless, since the work is fully comprehensive of the discipline, it is also suitable for university classes of graduate and undergraduate students. In particular, the book discusses classical aspects of cellular physiology and the metabolism of physical exercise, as well as novel topics like exercise in transplantation and exercise in beta-cell failure, which mark the frontiers of research in sport-related sciences and research. Exercise physiologists, biologists and physicians are the specific professional and academic targets of this work. The team of authors together with the editor are world-renowned experts in the field of physiology and metabolism applied to sport sciences.

About the authors

Livio Luzi MD is Professor of Endocrinology and a world renowned diabetologist. In addition to his current role as Dean of the Faculty of Exercise Sciences at the University of Milan Medical School, he is also Adjunct Professor at the Diabetes Research Institute, Miami FL, USA. He has published over 300 scientific papers in the area of diabetes/metabolism/physical exercise and over the past 30 years has trained and/or supervised more than 30 fellows. Several of these have gone on to become principal investigators in the area of diabetes/metabolism/physical exercise. The two authors are presently working in the United States (Ricordi, University of Miami and Fiorina, Harvard University) and are top scientists in their field of research. Most of the remaining authors work in Milan and are world renowned scientists in their respective fields of research.
