International Conference on the Bioscience of Lipids - June 2014

55th International Conference on the Bioscience of Lipids
23 - 27 June 2014
Robert Gordon University
Aberdeen, Scotland, UK

Call for Abstracts - oral or poster presentations (abstract should include a title and an outline of the work you wish to present; they should be no more than 250 words in total).

Abstracts on all aspects of lipid research are invited, but since the conference programme includes themed sessions, if your abstract aligns specifically to one of these sessions please indicate which one:

  • Lipid Modulators of Inflammation and Immunity
  • Modified Fatty Acids and Lipids
  • Endocannabinoids: Synthesis and Function
  • Phytolipids - A Vision for the Future?
  • Lipidomics - What's Next?
  • Lipids in Whole Body Systems
  • Membrane Lipid Trafficking
  • Other (Please detail)

How to Submit an Abstract
The abstract submission process is handled by Oxford Abstracts - you will be asked to set up a password which you can use to access and update your submission until the closing deadline. Please also note your abstract submission number and quote this in all conference correspondence. Please submit your abstract using the appropriate links at the ICBL 2014 website www.icbl-2014.org

Deadline for Submissions
The deadline for all submissions is January 31 2014. We anticipate confirming acceptances of abstracts by the end of February 2014.

JBC: CARS microscopy gives new insights into the remodeling of lipid droplets during lipolysis and growth in adipocytes

Using label-free coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy, LIPOTOX scientists report in the Journal of Biological Chemistry that LDs grow by transfer of lipids from one organelle to another. Read more.

Nature Medicine: ATGL-mediated fat catabolism regulates cardiac mitochondrial function via the PPARa and PGC-1a and b

LIPOTOX scientists report in Nature Medicine that lipolysis of cellular triacylglycerols by adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) generates essential mediator(s) involved in PPAR activation.
