The 2nd Annual Conference of the Chinese Society for Lipid Metabolism & Bioenergetics concluded in Shanghai on April 3.
The conference was organized by Zhongshan Hospital, a unit affiliated to Fudan University, the State Key Laboratory of Genetic Engineering, the School of Life Sciences of Fudan University, the Fudan Institute for Metabolic Diseases, and the Collaborative Innovation Center for Genetics and Development.
A total of 47 high-profile foreign experts from Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as more than 100 Chinese academics were invited to share the latest research achievements focusing on subjects such as lipid synthesis, storage and degradation, microbiome and metabolism, lipid trafficking and membrane contact sites, transcriptional and neuronal regulation of metabolism, and other hot topics in the study of metabolisms.
At the opening ceremony, Li Peng, president of Chinese Society for Lipid Metabolism & Bioenergetics expressed her warm welcome to the attendees and reviewed the progress and achievements made in the field of lipid metabolism during the past ten years.
She also laid out her vision for the future of the discipline during her speech.
Jin Li, vice-president of Fudan University stressed the importance of academic exchanges, adding that the conference would play a significant role in enhancing cooperation within China and with foreign countries to promote the development of lipid metabolism and bioenergetics.
