Modern Concepts and Methods in Bioenergetics examines mitochondrial and cellular bioenergetics, including advances made in understanding the contribution of dysfunctional bioenergetics in the pathogenesis and propagation of various diseases, how to target pathways with novel drugs and metabolites to prevent or treat diseases, and the use of mitochondrial bioenergetic signatures as biomarkers for disease progression. This book highlights methods that have been used to gauge the Mitochondrial Health Index, and also provides novel approaches utilized to identify how mitochondria participate in cellular signaling, serve as a platform for information transmission and act as a sink for intra- and extracellular reactive oxygen species.

These topics are discussed along with central themes of mitochondrial bioenergetics and redox biology, factors that are integral for optimal cellular health.

  • Provides practical methods and protocols instruction, empowering new research and clinical translation
  • Features chapter contributions from leading, international researchers in the field
  • Emphasizes new and evolving studies in the field of bioenergetics

Manisha Singh, PhD, is a trained human and mouse immunologist and during the last 10 years, she has specialized in cancer immunology. The main focus of her work has been to increase the efficacy and understand the molecular mechanisms of various cancer immunotherapies. She is serving as the principal investigator on a 2-year grant ($545,486), having been funded by the US Department of Defense. Dr. Singh's current research is focused on understanding the role of inflammation in immune suppression and resistance to immunotherapy in cancer. Recently, she has submitted the NIH-R01 grant in which she proposed to study the role of IL-1a in immunotherapy induced resistance. She has published 24 peer-reviewed articles and many abstracts in prestigious journals such as Nature Communication, Journal of Immunology, and Journal of Clinical Investigator. Her work has been cited by several prestigious, peer-reviewed, international journals.
