Fed Lipid Newsletter May 2009: Make sure to arrange your trip to Graz
It is time to invite you to
join us at the 6th
GERLI Lipidomics meeting "Bioactive lipids,
Nutrition and Health" in Rennes (France), 1-3 July 2009. This
meeting will focus
on the following five major topics:
The 1st session "From methods for
modification of lipid metabolism to lipid-modified organisms" will
report on a large panel of vectors used to modified lipid metabolism in
various organisms and describe the purposes of these modifications.
2nd session "New regulation and signal functions for saturated fatty
acids" will update the list of biochemical and physiological functions
that individual saturated fatty acids are able to produce.
In the 3rd
session "Bioactive synthetic lipids for imaging", the synthesis of
lipid probes and the use of these new tools will be described.
session "Marine lipids, physiological and pharmacological roles" will
focus on the growing list of functions associated with new discovered
marine lipid molecules.
Finally, the last session "From physiological
functions to fatty acid dietary recommendations in humans" will give an
idea of the current reassessment in several countries of the
nutritional dietary recommendations for fatty acids.
The deadline for
abstract submission and early registration fees is 15 May 2009.
would also like to take advantage of the opportunity to remind the
that GERLI (Groupe d' Etudes et de Recherches en Lipidomique) is an
academic society devoted to promoting research in lipidomics. It is one
of the groups linked to the French Society of Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology, in addition it is also a member of Euro
Fed Lipid. Since 1978, GERLI has been a driving force in the field of
basic lipid biochemistry and physiology. During the last years, this
society has been promoting lipidomics in various ways. An annual
meeting is organized, which updates the last knowledge in lipid
structures and molecular mechanisms involved in various
physiopathologies. The GERLI society also gives awards each year to
several doctoral thesis in order to encourage young scientists in the
We would be pleased to meet you in
Rennes next July.

in Graz? ||
do people meet at night in Graz? Well, be warned, one night is
enough to do justice to the thriving nightlife scene in Graz.
assured, it is perfectly safe to move around in the city at night. What
might be dangerous and potentially irresistible are the many
temptations of the nightlife in Graz. And not only in the classical
nightlife hub 'Bermuda-Dreieck' (Bermuda-Triangle), where a substantial
number of party goers have been reported missing. The nightlife scene
in Graz is varied and colourful, offering something for every taste.
Bermuda-Dreieck is located between Mehlplatz, Prokopigasse und
Färberplatz and numerous cocktailbars, winebars, beer gardens,
restaurants and cafes inviting strollers to stay for a drink or two.
it becomes clearly visible that Graz is a student town.

communication between specialists in a field among the members, Euro
Fed Lipid is in the process of setting up divisions on specific topics
science and technology of Lipids, Fats and Oils or of public interest
in this field. Participation is open to every Euro Fed Lipid member. If
you are a Euro Fed Lipid member and are interested in joining one or
divisions free of charge, please
inform the headquarters.
Possible activities of divisions
1) To enable networking between members
organise sessions for the annual Euro Fed Lipid congress
organise symposia and workshops within their area of interest
to promote public relations
5) To provide scientific
consultation for the Euro Fed Lipid board
6) To co-operate
with other divisions
already founded or in foundation:
- Marine Lipids
in (land based) animal science
- Plant Lipids
in Health and Nutrition
- Edible Oil Applications
