The "7th European Workshop on Lipid Mediators", co-organized by the BPBL research group (Prof Muccioli and Dr Alhouayek), will be held at the UCL in Brussels from 12-14 September 2018.

Bruxelles Woluwe

This biennal workshop is primarily addressed to scientists interested in the field of bioactive lipid mediators. Scientists from across and outside Europe will share their expertise on the biochemistry, molecular biology and physiology of lipids as signaling molecules, as well as their involvement in inflammation, and their specific roles in several disease conditions.

The workshop has two main goals: 1) to bring together researchers to discuss the most recent results and developments in this expanding area; and 2) to promote interaction and exchange of ideas among the different laboratories.

For this 7th edition, a special emphasis will be placed on:

i) lipid mediator receptors and signalling

ii) lipid mediators in immune and inflammatory responses

iii) lipid mediators in vascular and metabolic diseases

iv) endocannabinoids

v) lipidomic analysis of fatty acids and their derivatives

We especially welcome students and postdoctoral scientists to attend this workshop, and a special session will be devoted to them.
