Aims and scope

Nutrition & Metabolism publishes studies with a clear focus on nutrition and metabolism with applications ranging from nutrition needs, exercise physiology, clinical and population studies, as well as the underlying mechanisms in these aspects.

The areas of interest for Nutrition & Metabolism encompass studies in molecular nutrition in the context of obesity, diabetes, lipedemias, metabolic syndrome and exercise physiology. Manuscripts related to molecular, cellular and human metabolism, nutrient sensing and nutrient–gene interactions are also in interest, as are submissions that have employed new and innovative strategies like metabolomics/lipidomics or other omic-based biomarkers to predict nutritional status and metabolic diseases.

Editor's profile

Dr. Xu Lin received her medical degree in China and PhD from Division of Nutritional Science, Cornell University and was trained as a postdoctoral fellow in University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University. She became a professor and a Principal Investigator in Institute for Nutritional Sciences in SIBS since 2003 and served as the director for Key Laboratory of Nutrition and Metabolism in CAS (2008-16). Dr. Lin’s current research focuses include the effects of gene-gene, gene-environment factors (diet/lifestyle) and gene-phenotype, and their interaction on the development of obesity, related metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes; the predictive roles of omics-based biomarkers for metabolic diseases; nutrition intervention trials for individuals with metabolic disorders and also effects of genetic and non-genetic factors on nutritional requirement. So far, she has published about 100 papers in international reputable journals including Circulation, J Am Coll Cardiol, Diabetes, Am J Clin Nutr, Nature and Nature Genetics.
