KinMet – Kinetics and Metabolism
The KinMet Meetings
For more than thirty years researchers have been meeting to present and discuss research focused on lipid and lipoprotein metabolism in in vivo and in vitro systems, the use of tracer studies and mathematical modeling. Historically, meetings were held before or following the November American Heart Association Scientific Meetings. More recently, KinMet meetings have been held on the afternoon prior to the Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology Annual Conference (ATVB) meeting held in May each year.
The KinMet meeting is broadly divided into three sessions:
- Lipid Molecular Cell Biology and Modeling
- ApoB, Lp(a) and apo(a) Metabolism and Modeling
- High Density Lipoprotein Metabolism and Modeling
KinMet meetings are informal and provide a forum for all researchers, including postgraduate students, to present some preliminary data, a complete research study or to discuss issues related to experimental design and analysis.
The 2017 KinMet Meeting, Wednesday May 3 in Minneapolis
The 2017 Minneapolis KinMet Meeting will be held Wednesday, May 3 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. The ATVB meeting starts the following morning, May 4, in the same hotel.
The 2016 Robert I Levy Award was presented to Elizabeth Parks, Professor of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, University of Missouri, MO. The Berman/Zech Award was presented to John Millar from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
A full program of presentations about new and exciting lab methods, modeling approaches and studies of lipoprotein metabolism will be available on the Meetings webpage closer to the May meeting. Past presentations at the KinMet meeting are listed on the Past Meetings page.
