Lipids: from Membrane Dynamics to Signaling


 Download the conference flyer



The meeting starts on Sunday Nov 6 at 14:00 and closes on Wednesday Nov 9 at 14:00.

It will be followed by a satellite lipidomics meeting: “the lipidomyste days”.

The scientific program is regularly updated and the final one will come soon (end of september).

Sessions are listed below.

Each session will include presentations from invited speakers and oral communications selected from submitted abstracts. Go to Abstract submission
