Frontiers in Lipid Biology

In the last decade there have been significant gains in our knowledge of metabolic diseases related to lipid biochemistry. The program will focus on the fundamental research that is leading to these developments, particularly in the emerging areas of obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lung pathology and endocannabinoid biochemistry. New techniques used to investivate these areas of lipid biology will be emphasized. This is a must attend event for scientists of all career stages to hear from top scientists from around the world and to present their research through oral and poster presentations.
Main Topics:

• Triacylglycerol metabolism
• Phospholipid function
• Lipid signaling and trafficking
• Cholesterol Metabolism
• Genetics of lipid diseases
• Fatty acid metabolism
• Lipids and disease
