This symposium focuses on recent
advances in understanding molecular functions of lipids in cells and in
novel technologies to study cellular metabolism, transport, localization and
function of lipids.
This timely symposium aims to investigate
recent advancements concerning the lipid composition of various organelles, the
characterization of specific intramembrane lipid-protein interactions, the
regulation of lipid synthesis and transport and the development of tools such
as photoactivatable and caged lipids.
� Intracellular lipid homeostasis
� Regulation of lipid synthesis and transport
� Protein-lipid interactions
� Functionalized lipids and novel tools to study lipids in cells
