Title of the workshop: Lipid metabolism in health and disease: From bench to patient phenotyping

The aim of this workshop is to bring together leading experts in lipid metabolism across Switzerland and demonstrate the importance of understanding lipid metabolism in health and disease. It provides an opportunity for PhD students to experience a wide spectrum of research from basic experimental to clinical applications as well as presenting emerging technologies in metabolism including systems genetics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, lipidomics and computational biology to study metabolism-related processes. This workshop offers lectures by internationally recognized speakers in the field of lipid metabolism who are based in Switzerland and provides an opportunity for students and post-docs to present their research as poster and some will be selected as a short-talk. In addition, it exhibits the importance of state-of-the-art technologies especially metabolomics/lipidomics in the field of system biology. The workshop is also designed to allow networking during designated coffee/lunch breaks and apero.




Please note that the Graduate office in Unibern Graduate School for Cellular and Biomedical Sciences (GCB) ( gives 1 ECT to students by participating and presenting @ Swiss Lipid Workshop!
