2018 Fifth Annual Lipids@Wayne Symposium

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.
