Dear Lipids@Wayne community,  

      Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lipids@Wayne has CANCELED this event. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will keep you updated with new developments as they arise.



Lipids@Wayne, a forum for exchange of research ideas, methods, and knowledge in lipid research, is pleased to sponsor the Seventh Annual Lipids@Wayne Symposium, which addresses the vital roles of lipids in cellular processes required for normal physiological function.
