Lipids@Wayne, the forum for exchange of research ideas, methods and knowledge in lipid research, is pleased to sponsor the Fifth Annual Lipids@Wayne Symposium, which addresses the vital roles of lipids in cellular processes required for normal physiological function. Perturbation of lipid metabolism contributes to numerous pathologies, including cancer and cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurological disorders. We invite you to participate in this exploration of the lipid frontier.

In addition to the scheduled speakers listed below, a judged poster session for post-docs and graduate students will also take place. Winners will be given cash prizes. A lunch will also be provided for all attendees.

The event is free to attend, but an RSVP is required. To register and/or submit an abstract, please visit:
