Alterations in lipid homeostasis play critical roles in the development of human metabolic disorders, such as obesity, type II diabetes and fatty liver. This meeting brings together world-leading experts to present and discuss latest developments in the study of lipid metabolism, as well as their implications for human health and disease. The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Additional oral presentations will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference will provide ample opportunities for scientific as well as informal interactions.
