We would like to welcome you to join the 41st edition of the European Lipoprotein Club (ELC) meeting that will take place September 10-13, 2018 in Tutzing, Germany.
The overall aim of the ELC meeting is to bring researchers together within the field of lipoproteins in relation, but not limited, to cardiometabolic disease. The ELC meeting is a relatively small informal meeting that can be attended by only approx. 140 participants. The registration fees are low (€200-400 depending on age), and include participation in the scientific sessions, accommodation and all meals.
The concept is a good mix of presentations by research investigators, postdocs and graduate students. Abstracts are selected according to their scientific merit, and it has become one of the traditions that many graduate students give presentations. Young investigators automatically participate in the competition for Young Investigator Oral and Poster Awards, which include a financial reward.
We look forward to meet you in wonderful Tutzing at the Evangelische Akademie in Tutzing, Bavaria, Germany! To be able to be selected to attend this year’s meeting, please make sure to submit your abstract by May 01, 2018.
Three to five topics, selected by the organising committee, will be discussed at the meeting, in five working sessions spread over four days, starting with a Keynote Lecture on Monday evening, September 10. The final programme will be based on the abstracts accepted for oral presentation and will be available by mid-August.
The Scientific Programme includes the Keynote Lecturer Professor Gerald Watts. Other invited speakers are Professor Christoph Binder (Vienna, Austria), Professor Catherine Boileau (Paris, France), Professor Jan van Deursen (Rochester, MN, USA) and Professor Kausik Ray (London, United Kingdom).
