The Intestinal Lipid Metabolism Conference: In Health and Disease
July 19 @ 8:00 am - July 23 @ 5:00 pmUSD $1,275
The main themes of this meeting are: 1) The intestinal microbiota and its influence on lipid absorption and whole animal lipid physiology; 2) Intestinal regulation of bile acid metabolism and its impact on physiology; 3) The cell biology and physiology of specific key cell types of the intestine (enterocyte, enteroendocrine, and stem cells).
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
Enterocytes: cell biology and lipid trafficking
Enteroendocrine cell biology, signaling, and physiology
Intestinal stem cell biology
Intestinal regulation of bile acid metabolism and its impact on physiology
Intestinal microbiota and its influence on lipid absorption and physiology
Emerging technologies for studying intestinal biology and lipid metabolism
Intestinal lipid metabolism and the gut-brain axis
Intestine and metabolic disease
In addition to an opening keynote lecture from Eugene Chang, PhD (University of Chicago), the conference will feature nine oral sessions, two poster sessions, a “speed-dating” community-introduction event, and a career development session.
