27 – 30
The EMBO workshop on “Lipid function in health and disease” will take place from September 27-30 at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden. This workshop will combine biochemical, biophysical, and cell biological approaches to lipid function and metabolism and move from basic science to cover lipids in health and disease. By trying to creatively present the attractiveness and breadth of the field, this EMBO Workshop will confront the speakers and the participants with the exciting challenges ahead. Register until May 31. There is a significant amount of travel grants for young scientists. It’s a great opportunity for lipid enthusiasts, but also for those that have recently realized that lipids play a role in their research.
