Community Forum

The community forum is an informal way to provide feedback on the LIPID MAPS databases and resources. Have you suggestions for new initiatives; would you like to ask for advice on how to use the resources; or send through information on items that need updating or correcting?

You can also use the community forum to start informal conversations on lipidomics in general, and link up with others to create discussion amongst the community.

You can view online discussions, and/or create your own profile to log in so you can freely post questions or comments.

We look forward to you joining us on the forum, and contributing to our lipid conversations!

These will evolve and be updated as necessary.
