Lipidomics Workshop

Location: Renaissance Hotel, Washington, DC
Start Date: 4/28/2007 8:00 AM
End Date: 4/28/2007 12:00 PM

The NIGMS-funded LIPID MAPS Consortium ( Link to external Web site) will hold an open workshop on lipidomics on Saturday, April 28, at the Experimental Biology 2007 meeting in Washington, DC.

A panel of eight experts will discuss methods developed under the NIGMS “glue grant” to the Consortium for the analysis of neutral glycerolipids, phospholipids, eicosanoids, sterols, sphingolipids, prenols, and various novel lipids by mass spectrometry as well as related issues such as sample extraction, internal standards, data handling and display, and nomenclature. 

In addition to reviewing the LIPID MAPS protocols, the panel will invite questions and discussion regarding these issues and the directions of future lipidomics research and developments. 

The workshop will be held in the Grand Ballroom South of the Renaissance Hotel, 999 Ninth Street NW, Washington, DC, from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  The final hour will be reserved for open discussion over light refreshments.

Attendance is free and registration for the Experimental Biology meeting is not required. Those who are interested in attending are encouraged to contact both Al Merrill ( or Jean Chin (, but “walk-ins” are also welcome.
