About this Research Topic
Bone marrow adipose tissue (BMAT) represents a sophisticated multi-cellular niche that supports organismal metabolism, intricate endocrine and hematological functions, as well as skeletal health. Yet, we are only beginning to appreciate the unique molecular, cellular, and physiological properties of this distinct adipose depot. This second BMAS-sponsored Issue integrates the effort of BMAS in collaboration with Frontiers in Endocrinology to provide a gold standard compendium of state of the art research and methodologies for basic, translational and clinical research of BMAT. Submissions must follow IBMAS standards for nomenclature and data reporting established in our first issue.
This collection is part of the International Bone Marrow Adiposity Society collaboration with Frontiers in Endocrinology.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
