Lipids - In Vivo Dynamics, Protein Partners and Signaling

Theme organizers:
Michael Best, Univ. of Tennessee at Knoxville and Wonhwa Cho, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago        

This theme is made up of four symposia, one scheduled each day of the meeting, Sun – Wed.  Please read below for invited speaker and session schedule information.  In addition to the invited talks listed below, short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts.  To be considered for a volunteered talk in this theme, submit your abstract to an ASBMB topic category number: 2140-2170, by the November 8th submission deadline.  All volunteered abstracts will be programmed for poster presentation.  Those selected for oral presentation will also present a poster.  Programming notifications will be sent in mid-January.  We look forward to seeing you at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, BCEC, March 28 – April 1, 2015.
