This is an exciting time for the emerging field of lipidomics. With the development and evolution of sophisticated mass spectrometers linked to highly efficient liquid chromatography systems, individual molecular species of lipids can now be isolated and identified, allowing us to begin to understand lipid metabolism and the treatment of lipid-based diseases (atherosclerosis and inflammatory disease as well as arthritis, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's disease). Recent awareness that each category of lipid consists of thousands if not tens of thousands of individual molecular species requires sophisticated informatics to ensure consistent databasing and annotation of the numerous lipid molecular species and analysis of tremendous quantities of experimental data. The goal of this meeting is to bring together biological and biomedical scientists in a wide range of fields to share new findings and methods in the broader lipidomics field and to explore joint efforts to extend the use of these powerful new methods to new applications. Presentations will provide an excellent introduction for scientists new to these methods, and are sure to be of interest to lipidomics veterans to learn about latest techniques and research results.

The meeting program features the following sessions, with over 20 speakers presenting in six sessions:

  • Membrane Protein Interactions
  • Cell and Tissue Imaging
  • Lipid Mediators and Inflammatory Disease
  • Lipids in Cell Biology
  • Cholesterol and Atherosclerosis
  • Macrophage Biology
  • Metabolomics, Clinical Networks and Informatics

Several short talks will also be selected from poster submissions.

Poster sessions will take place on both days of the meeting. The poster abstract deadline (Sunday, March 21, 2010) has passed.

The reception and dinner Monday evening (included in the registration fee) are an opportunity for stimulating discussion and networking.

Please register as soon as possible, as space is limited and registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. The early registration deadline (Sunday, March 21, 2010) has passed.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting!
