Deuel Conference on Lipids

ASBMB Deuel Conference on Lipids
Location, location, location: How lipid trafficking impacts cell signaling and metabolism
March 1–4, 2022 | Monterey, Calif.

The Deuel conference takes place annually at a West Coast location for five sessions over two and a half days. The conference centers around an aspect of lipid metabolism and maintains an informal atmosphere, encourages free and open discussion, and is a forum for the presentation of new and unpublished data.

Attendees enjoy the informality and the meeting provides the depth and breadth of expertise necessary for a high quality conference. Participants are investigators in the field of lipids and lipoproteins from the around the world. Interested scientists are invited to attend and encourage trainees to submit abstracts.
