Mario Austoni. Questo testo monografico, e pertanto unitario ed equilibrato, è quindi anche il frutto aggiornato di una frequentazione pluridecennale, nelle vesti di regista ma anche di critico, di una comunità accademica nella quale si sono sviluppate nel tempo competenze ultraspecialistiche nei vari settori dell'endocrinologia e del metabolismo, che qui vengono riprese in modo sistematico.
