Autophagy in Health and Disease, Volume 175, presents the latest insights from renowned experts in the field who discuss the key role of autophagic responses in the preservation of cellular and organismal homeostasis and how defects in the molecular apparatus for autophagy drive or accompany disease. Specific chapters in this new release include Crosstalk between autophagy and cell death signaling: mechanisms and therapeutic relevance, C. elegans to model autophagy-related human disorders, Autophagy in Kidney Disease: advances and therapeutic potential, Autophagy in Chronic Lung Disease, Autophagy in motoneuronal disorders, Strategies employed by viruses to manipulate autophagy, and much more.

Key Features

  • Provides an outstanding panel of recognized experts in the field who discuss the latest in autophagy
  • Includes critical discussions of autophagy in the context of each major human disorder
  • Models autophagy-related human pathologies in lower eukaryotes


Equally addressed to expert researchers who may want to extend their technical portfolio, and to beginners in this exciting and rapidly growing field of investigation

About the Serial Volume Editors

Lorenzo Galluzzi

Lorenzo Galluzzi

Lorenzo Galluzzi is Assistant Professor of Cell Biology in Radiation Oncology at the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Weill Cornell Medical College, Honorary Assistant Professor Adjunct with the Department of Dermatology of the Yale School of Medicine, Honorary Associate Professor with the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Paris, and Faculty Member with the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology of the University of Ferrara, the Graduate School of Pharmacological Sciences of the University of Padova, and the Graduate School of Network Oncology and Precision Medicine of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. Moreover, he is Associate Director of the European Academy for Tumor Immunology and Founding Member of the European Research Institute for Integrated Cellular Pathology. Galluzzi is best known for major experimental and conceptual contributions to the fields of cell death, autophagy, tumor metabolism and tumor immunology. He has published over 450 articles in international peer-reviewed journals and is the Editor-in-Chief of four journals: OncoImmunology (which he co-founded in 2011), International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology, Methods in Cell biology, and Molecular and Cellular Oncology (which he co-founded in 2013). Additionally, he serves as Founding Editor for Microbial Cell and Cell Stress, and Associate Editor for Cell Death and Disease, Pharmacological Research and iScience.

Aitziber Buque

Aitziber Buqué (born 1980) is currently Post-Doctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Lorenzo Galluzzi with the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY, USA). Prior to joining the Galluzzi lab (2018), Aitziber Buqué was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Research Team “Apoptosis, Cancer and Immunity” at the Cordeliers Research Center (Paris, France; 2014-2018), under the direction of Dr. Guido Kroemer, after receiving her PhD from the University of the Basque Country (Leioa, Spain; 2013). Aitziber Buqué is interested in the molecular, cellular and immunological mechanisms whereby breast cancer evades immunosurveillance and resists to immunotherapy, and she is the author of more than 30 scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals.
