Molecular Metabolism is committed to serving as a platform reporting breakthroughs from all stages of the discovery and development of novel and improved personalized medicines for obesity, diabetes and associated diseases. The journal aims to publish hypothesis driven research of leading scientists paving the way to a better understanding of metabolic physiology, thereby enabling progress toward prevention and ultimately a cure of the metabolic syndrome. Molecular Metabolism reports interdisciplinary science with the potential for transformative impact on today's metabolism research, focusing on translation of major basic research discoveries toward the personalized medicines needed to prevent and cure diabesity and associated diseases tomorrow.
In 1932 the academic Belle Lowe, then the professor of Food and Nutrition at Iowa State College , published a book titled Experimental Cookery: From The Chemical And Physical Standpoint which became a standard textbook for home economics courses across the United States. The book is an exhaustively researched look into the science of everyday cooking referencing hundreds of sources and including many experiments. At a length of over 600 pages with section titles such as "The Relation Of Cookery To Colloidal Chemistry", "Coagulation Of Proteins", "The Factors Affecting The Viscosity Of Cream And Ice Cream", " Syneresis ", "Hydrolysis Of Collagen" and "Changes In Cooked Meat And The Cooking Of Meat", the volume rivals or exceeds the scope of many other books on the subject, at a much earlier date.
