Welcome to Lipids@Wayne

Lipids@Wayne is a program of Wayne State University researchers from the School of Medicine, Physics and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Now in our seventh year, our twice-monthly presentations focus on cutting-edge research and technological advances in lipid research and lipidomics. These meetings have led to very fruitful collaborations. 

In addition to these presentations, we sponsor an annual symposium that addresses the vital roles of lipids in cellular processes required for normal physiological function. The symposium features excellent plenary lectures from outstanding invited speakers at the cutting edge of lipid research. A poster session is also featured, which fosters discussion and sharing of research findings. Awards are given for the most outstanding posters presented by graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and residents.
