Lipids are essentially involved in many physiological processes. Dysregulations of lipid metabolism have been linked to several diseases. The symposium organized by the Lausanne Integrative Metabolism and Nutrition Alliance (LIMNA) will provide an overview of cell biology aspects, introduce you to current avenues in clinical lipids research and adipocyte biology, new tools and areas for lipids investigations, as well as the role of membrane lipids and lipid droplets.
Organizing committee: Francesca Amati, Giovanni D’Angelo, Ping-Chih Ho, Alexis Jourdain & Marlen Knobloch
Talks will be given by:
- Giovanni d'Angelo (Laboratory of Lipid Cell Biology, EPFL)
- Anne-Claude Gavin (Department of cell physiology and metabolism, UNIGE)
- Laura Goracci (H-EcoTox Laboratory, University of Perugia, Italy)
- Matthijs Hesselink (Maastricht University Medical Centre, The Netherlands)
- Marlen Knobloch (Department of Biomedical Sciences, UNIL)
- Thomas Langer (Max-Planck-Institute for Biology of Ageing, Cologne, Germany)
- Kristy Spalding (Cell and Molecular Biology, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden)
- Tobias Walther (Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York City, USA)
