About us

Lipids@Wayne is a program that coordinates researchers across Wayne State University for the study of lipids in basic biology, biophysics, metabolism, cancer, and inflammation.

Biweekly Seminars

Since 2012, we have hosted twice-monthly seminars focus on cutting-edge research and technological advances in lipid research and lipidomics. These meetings have led to very fruitful collaborations. Approximately half of our seminars are world-renouned external researchers and half are given by WSU faculty, staff, and students. To find out more, see the seminar schedule.

Annual Symposium

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. To find out more, see the symposium schedule.
