For lipids researchers: Deuel meeting deadline nears
The ASBMB–Deuel Conference on Lipids is going to be in sunny California in March, and you have only about a week left to submit an abstract if you want to present your work.
The Deuel Conference poster session is *the* place for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to showcase their lipid research, and the slots are filling up fast. Submit your abstract by Feb. 1 to secure yours. Importantly, trainees who submit abstracts and whose supervisors are attending will be considered for travel awards.
The organizers this year are Cynthia Hong of Novartis and Peter Tontonoz of the University of California, Los Angeles. They’ve put together a terrific program, and Jake Lusis of UCLA will give the Havel Lecture, which is titled “The power of natural variation: Sex differences and mitochondrial functions.”
The meeting will be held from Tuesday, March 5, through Friday, March 8. The registration fee includes lodging at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point, Calif.
Unrelated side note that we found interesting: The chair of the Deuel board, Jay Horton of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, plays an important role in a recent ASBMB Today cover story about a patent fight over PCSK9 inhibitors for lowering blood cholesterol.
