IFNH Building, Room 101, Cook Campus, 61 Dudley Road, New Brunswick, NJ


We are pleased to welcome you to the fourth annual symposium of the Rutgers Center for Lipid Research (RCLR) entitled “Lipid Diversity and Human Disease.”  We have brought together an outstanding group of scientists who will share their knowledge, results, and insights into how different classes of lipids mediate normal and pathophysiological functions related to human disease. We are certain that you will find the presentations and posters, which are designed to facilitate your interaction with other scientists, stimulating, informative, and enjoyable.
