About

The  Lipid Research Division was born from a grassroots discussion of broad concerns shared by all lipid research scientists. These included issues such as increased national and international visibility for lipid research and increased funding for lipid research. We invite you to join this community, contribute to the ongoing discussions and help support the lipid community.

The Lipid Research Division is part of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
