Sixth Annual Symposium - Focus on the Future 

Registration & Abstract Submission Now Open!

Lipids@Wayne, a midwest forum for exchange of research ideas, methods, and knowledge in lipid research, is pleased to sponsor the Sixth Annual Lipids@Wayne Symposium on May 7, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The symposium will be held in the Student Center Ballroom (Rm 265) on the main campus of Wayne State University.

This symposium will address 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. We invite you to participate in this exploration of the lipid frontier.

This year's event, with a focus on trainees, encourages graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to share their research, in both the oral and poster sessions. 

The scientific program includes an oral presentation session with eight speakers selected from submitted abstracts, a poster session, and a keynote address. Monetary prizes will be awarded to the best oral presenter and the best three poster presenters. Following the scientific sessions, a panel discussion will be held focusing on career success.

A light lunch will be provided to all registrants.

The event is free to attend, but an RSVP is required.

Register and/or submit an abstract now!

Abstract submissions for oral presentations are due by April 7, 2019 @ 5 p.m.

The deadline for general registration and poster abstract submission is May 3 @ 5 p.m.
