Plant biochemistry and metabolic diseases such as diabetes, are among the leading, costliest, and often preventable causes of death worldwide. Research aimed at understanding the relationship between plant biochemistry disease, obesity, and metabolic risk factors, will be important for developing candidate therapeutic, reparative, and prevention strategies.
Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of metabolic and plant biochemistry physiology, and their interrelationship. This will include topics such as principle energy systems, appetite and energy expenditure, and plant biochemistry function and regulation, including the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and socioeconomic impact of cardiometabolic diseases, with an emphasis on the translation of basic scientific discoveries into practical applications.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
