4th International Singapore Lipid Symposium
13 Mar 2012 - 16 Mar 2012 - National University of Singapore, Centre for Life Sciences, Singapore
Once viewed simply as a reservoir for carbon storage, lipids are no longer cast as bystanders in the drama of biological systems. The emerging field of lipidomics is driven by technology, most notably mass spectrometry, but also by complementary approaches for the detection and characterization
of lipids and their biosynthetic enzymes in living cells. The development of these integrated tools promises to greatly advance our understanding of the diverse biological roles of lipids.
The aim of the symposium is to spur this process by bringing together investigators with diverse backgrounds in lipid research.
Leading scientists from around the world will present their latest research advances in a workshop-style forum.
