July 28-August 2, 2019

FASEB Conference | The lysophospholipid and related mediators conference: from bench to clinic

(Lisbon, Portugal.)

The organizers write, “The main themes of this conference are:

1) Identify specific roles for S1P and LPA, and other lysolipids in multiple disease states;

2) Define common links in lysophospholipid biology that will lead to collaboration and enable translation of current research into improvements in human health;

3) Explore disease biomarkers specifically linked with LPA/S1P receptor-mediated response that will lead to development of novel lysophospholipid-targeted therapeutics.”

Applications are open through June 12, 2019. Learn more here.
