Nutritional Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Molecular Nutrition

edited by J. Zempleni
and H. Daniel


Molecular nutrition (the study of interactions between nutrients and various intracellular and extracellular molecules) is one of the most rapidly developing fields in nutritional science. Ultimately, molecular nutrition research will reveal how nutrients may affect fundamental processes such as DNA repair, cell proliferation, and apoptosis.

Molecular Nutrition contains contributions from leading international experts, and reviews the most important and latest research from various areas of molecular nutrition.
