Complex Lipids in Biology: Signaling, Compartmentalization and Disease
joint with PI 3-Kinase Signaling in Disease
Organizer(s): Robert C. Murphy, Julie D. Saba and Michael J.O. Wakelam
Date: April 22 - 27, 2009
Location: Resort at Squaw Creek, Olympic Valley, CA, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Complex lipids constitute a diverse family of biomolecules of seven general classes that serve essential roles in Biology. For example, lipids include structural phospholipids that form cellular membranes but are also the reservoirs and source of polyunsaturated fatty acids that are signaling mediators. Intense research effort over the past years has substantially changed our understanding of lipid biochemistry and lipid function in cells with the application of new tools and techniques to study these molecules. This meeting will bring together a group of individuals who have the common goal of understanding the role that lipids play in cell biology, physiology and disease processes.
