Associate Professor Robin Klemm has edited a special issue for Seminars in Cell and Developmental Biology. “The molecular cell biology, metabolism and physiological functions of lipid droplets” provides an overview of the most recent developments in the field of lipid droplets, which are important storage organelles at the centre of lipid and energy homeostasis. Prof Klemm joined DPAG in June 2020, bringing with him a new field of research for the department, focusing on the molecular basis of lipid metabolism in professional fat storing cells called adipocytes. His research will impact our basic understanding of the cellular basis of fat metabolism and could lead to innovative new therapies to tackle metabolic disorders such as type II diabetes and obesity.
