Gut Microbiome Special Collection


The joint Editorial Board of Journal of Endocrinology and Journal of Molecular Endocrinology has commissioned a special collection of reviews in the field of the gut microbiome, which is becoming increasingly important and relevant to the field of endocrinology.

This special collection represents a broad overview of the current literature linking the two fields of gut microbiome and endocrinology.


Comments from the lead Editor: Jonathan Schertzer – McMaster University, Canada


"The host–microbe relationship influences endocrine control of growth and metabolism. These reviews highlight the connections between the microbiota, hormones, endocannabinoids, and nutrients in metabolic health and disease. Experts review how microbiota nutrient processing relays endocrine responses involved in the metabolism obesity versus stunting."

Explore the current articles today and share them with your colleagues, to further your understanding of this quickly expanding field of endocrinology.
