About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 13 January 2023
Manuscript Extension Submission Deadline 13 February 2023

Less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women!

Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes have discouraged women from pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by United Nations. Gender Equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a progressive society. However, Women in Science are often underrepresented and unacknowledged. On the path to defeating stereotypes, women researchers are working towards answering some of the most important questions in Science.

The coronavirus outbreak has worsened the existing inequalities for women across every sphere, including research. In spite of the odds, women researchers continue to prove pivotal to several crucial scientific advances.

The Women in Lipid and Fatty Acid Research: 2022 Research Topic offers a platform to showcase women’s impact in the field, together with their resilience to grow and support their achievements. This Research Topic aims to highlight the work led and achieved by women in the field of Lipid Physiology. Submissions covering any area of Lipid and Fatty Acid Research are welcome and those covering the following themes are encouraged:

1 Sex-related differences in lipids and fatty acid metabolism
2 Obesity effects on lipids
3 Sphingolipid metabolism in health and disease
4 Lipids and inflammation

For more information on the description and formats of the different article types please see here.

We strongly encourage the submission of manuscripts where the lead/last or corresponding author identifies as female, and we recommend early career researchers to team up with senior female colleagues. Co-authors can be of any gender.

This Research Topic is part of the Women in Physiology series. Other titles in this series are:

Women in Developmental Physiology: 2022
Women in Avian Physiology: 2022
Women in Exercise Physiology: 2021
Women in Gastrointestinal Sciences: 2021
Women in Integrative Physiology: 2021
Women in Clinical and Translational Physiology: 2021
Women in Invertebrate Physiology: 2021

Please submit your article to the Research Topic that best suits the focus of your research.

As per Frontier’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) Publishers Compact, we use our platform to help inform, develop, and inspire action that aligns with the 17 UN SDGs. This topic supports SDG 5 Gender Equality.

Keywords: lipid, fatty acid, metabolism, obesity, inflammation, #CollectionSeries
