Insulin resistance is central to the development of a cluster of prevalent conditions including type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemias, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. At present our understanding of the etiology of insulin resistance is limited, and few therapies are available. However, it is clear that the understanding of lipid metabolism and of lipids in their many forms and functions provides the key to unlocking the mysteries of insulin resistance. In this volume, an international group of investigators from a range of lipid-related disciplines explore new ideas for therapeutic targets.
