SERLC 2016

November 9th - 11th, 2016

The South Eastern Regional Lipid Conference (SERLC) is one of the largest and most established academic meetings on lipid biology research in the United States. The main themes are sphingolipids, phospholipids, and eicosanoids, their analysis by state of the art lipidomics, and their biological functions in cell signaling, cell biology and in physiological and pathophysiological processes, including metabolic and infectious diseases, immunology and cancer.

The 2016 SERLC promises to present the full complement
of one of the most vibrant scientific areas in
basic and biomedical research, and lipid biology.
The SERLC will once again bring together investigators
with expertise in lipidomics, lipid biochemistry and
molecular biology, and disease models, to foster
open dialogue and initiate novel collaborations
for a better understanding of major diseases,
including metabolic or infectious diseases, autoimmune
or allergic diseases, and cancer.
With no doubt, this year’s SERLC will once again
provide a unique platform for meeting colleagues,
friends, post-doc candidates and mentors
in a beautiful setting.

    A Sponsor

    Without corporate sponsorship, SERLC would not have become
    the success that it has been in recent years.
    The small size and intimate setting of this conference
    allows for ample opportunity to meet and network directly
    with researchers working in the field and will provide
    a highly focused opportunity to educate existing
    and future clientele about your products and services,
    as well as to gauge demand and interest in potential future products.
