Dear Reader,
Following the success of hosting the DSM Science and Technology Awards at our 2014 Stockholm meeting we are delighted that again this year DSM have decided to make these awards for research in the field of fatty acids and lipids and to hold the awards ceremony at the ISSFAL 2016 Congress in South Africa (see www.issfalcongress.com).

Details of the award, nomination requirements and contact details
are linked here.

Registration is now open for the Congress, and you may do that today

Ghent University

Ghent University is a top 100 university and one of the major universities in Belgium. The 11 faculties offer a wide range of courses and conduct in-depth research in both exact and social sciences.

Ghent University, abbreviated to UGent, was founded in 1817 by King William I of Orange.

The past 200 years, Ghent University employed many eminent scientists such as Nobel Prize winners Corneille Heymans and Maurice Maeterlinck, Leo Baekeland, Joseph Guislain, Walter Fiers, Marc Van Montagu, Peter Piot,...

You'll also find many prominent persons among our alumni such as Robert Cailliau (co-inventor of the Internet), Dirk Frimout (astronaut), Peter Piot (United Nations) and Jacques Rogge (former Chairman IOC).

Today, Ghent University is a top 100 university and one of the major Belgian universities counting over 41,000 students and 9,000 employees.

The 11 faculties are composed of 117 faculty departments. These departments offer more than 230 high-quality courses in every one of their scientific disciplines, each inspired by innovative research.

Microbe and Host Lipids

GERLI 12th GERLI Lipidomics Meeting: 23-26 October 2016, Toulouse, France

Microbes are found in almost every habitat present in nature and are vital to humans. For instance, the human microbiota has an influence on host physiology. In contrast, some pathogenic microbes can cause infectious diseases, which altogether claim 17 million deaths per year worldwide. Better understanding man and microbes interaction is thus a major public health issue. Indeed, a deeper knowledge of microbiota functions as well as the pathogenic mechanisms developed by microbes will pave the way for the development of new preventive or therapeutic strategies.

Lipids, via their different functions, play a key role in host-microbe interactions. They are essential components of the cell membranes. Some of them are able to modulate host cell functions, and might be used as virulence factors by pathogenic microbes. Manipulation of host lipid metabolism is among the invading strategies evolved by infectious agents, but regulation of host lipid metabolism in physiological conditions also relies on the microbiota. Finally, lipid mediators of inflammation play an essential role in the immune response to infection.

The 12th GERLI lipidomics meeting is part of a series of annual international conferences covering all aspects of lipid research, from advances in basic science to knowledge-based technology, and human health. It will focus on the role of microbe and host lipids in the different contexts of host-microbe interaction. These themes will be developed by some of the most renowned international experts in the field, based on studies dedicated to different types of microbes: bacteria (Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Mycobacterium, Shigella, Listeria), fungi (Aspergillus, Candida), viruses (Ebola, hepatitis C) and parasites (Plasmodium).

Nordic Lipidforum Seminar

Lipidforum "Contemporary methodologies for analysis and characterization of lipids"
Arrhenius Laboratories, Stockholm University, 23 – 24 August 2016

The seminar, which is organised in conjunction with the Dept. of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), Stockholm University, will cover methodologies of selected areas important and useful for lipid analysis and characterization. The aim is to review each area with examples and applications for industrial and quality control work, as well as for research purposes.

Seminar key contents:
Shotgun lipidomics
NMR Spectroscopy
Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) and Chromatography (SFC)
HPLC and GC in lipid analysis
Sample preparation
