The disease of obesity accounts for, directly or indirectly, reduced quality of life of affected individuals and imposes substantial societal economic costs. Obesity is not only an underpinning of major chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes, to name a few, but can be a serious debilitating condition in its own right. Research into obesity comes from multiple disciplines ranging from clinical practice to translational research to molecular and cellular biology.
