Larodan Research Grade Lipids Logo


Larodan will be attending the 2019 Kern Lipid Conference, taking place August 12-14 in Vail, Colorado. 

The first Aspen Lipid Conference was held in 1985 to promote science relating to the broad areas of lipid, cholesterol, bile acid and lipoprotein metabolism. In 1996, to honor the legacy of Fred Kern, Jr., the conference was renamed to The Kern Aspen Lipid Conference by an unanimous vote of the Board of Directors.

The emphasis of the Conference is to provide an open forum where scientists from both academia and industry can meet and discuss science related to lipid metabolism.

Please reach out to us if you plan on attending as we would love to see you there!

Gordon Research Seminars | Spatiotemporal Regulation of the Lipidome – July 28 to Aug. 2, 2019


Larodan will be attending the Gordon Research Conference on Spatiotemporal Regulation of the Lipidome from July 28  to August 2, 2019 in Waterville Valley, NH. 

The 2019 Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids Gordon Research Conference and Seminar will provide a forum for scientists to present and discuss their most recent discoveries in lipid biology and metabolism. A focus on the “Spatiotemporal Regulation of the Lipidome” reflects the remarkable complexity and vibrant plasticity of lipid molecules within living systems. Membranes and their lipid components are constantly remodeled at specific locations within cells during normal metabolism and in response to changes in their environment. Many signaling events are mediated by lipid molecules or their metabolites. Organismal energy needs are in constant flux and meeting these needs depends on changes in lipid metabolism at the cellular level and across multiple organ systems. Leading causes of death worldwide, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, have strong lipid components to their pathologies. Topics emphasized in the nine plenary sessions of this meeting include signal transduction through sphingolipids and phosphoinositides, the dynamic distribution of lipids within and between various membranes or lipid droplets, the impact of lipids on membrane properties, metabolism of fatty acids and sterols at the cellular and organismal level, lipid links to energy metabolism, and the involvement of lipids in disease processes. An outstanding group of invited speakers will anchor the plenary sessions, and 14 of the 36 talks will be chosen from the submitted abstracts to capture the most recent cutting-edge science. Poster sessions each day provide a great setting for discussion and feedback on emerging discoveries for all attendees. This conference seeks to attract scientists from across all subdisciplines of lipid research to provide a synergistic cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts. In addition, the beautiful setting within the White Mountain National Forest and abundant opportunities for outdoor activities provide an enjoyable environment for informal discussions. These interactions should accelerate the pace of groundbreaking discoveries in an area of science with tremendous impact on human health.

Please reach out to us if you plan on attending – we would love to see you there!

Gordon Research Seminars | Lipid Remodeling: From Molecular Mechanisms to Biological Functions – July 27-28, 2019

Larodan will be attending the Gordon Research Seminar on Lipid Remodeling: From Molecular Mechanisms to Biological Functions on July 27-28 in Waterville Valley, NH. 

This Gordon Research Seminar is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting-edge ideas.

This seminar will precede and complement the Gordon Research Conference by stimulating discussion amongst early career lipid researchers on the mechanisms, functions, and regulation of lipid remodeling in normal physiology and pathological conditions. In addition to a scientific program encompassing the most groundbreaking aspects of lipid biology, this seminar will feature a career mentorship panel comprised of both junior investigators and established leaders in the field.

The meeting will be conducted in an informal setting and provides a unique opportunity for participants to present unpublished data, exchange ideas and network with like-minded peers. Please reach out if you plan on attending – we would love to see you there!

European Symposium on Plant Lipids on July 7-10, 2019 in Marseille, France

Larodan will be sponsoring the European Symposium on Plant Lipids, taking place on July 7-10, 2019 in Marseille, France.

The European Symposium on Plant Lipids (ESPL) is an international conference, showcasing the key roles of lipids in plant/algal development, physiology and biotechnology applications. It is the best and most renown European conference dedicated to the study and biotechnological applications of lipids, already having almost 20 years of history. The 9th ESPL conference will be held in Marseille, France and will provide an excellent opportunity to illuminate the very best of current advances in the field of plant and algal lipids. ESPL has the long tradition of gathering world leading plant/algal lipid scientists to share and discuss the latest results in the areas of lipid research and to point future directions. Up to now, the ESPL congresses, from very fundamental aspects towards the biotechnological applications of lipid molecules, have brought together more than 120 top leading scientists from all around the world every two years. This has helped to build a global network of scientists in the field.
