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 April or May each year.
The KinMet meeting is broadly divided into three sessions:
- Lipid Kinetics and Modeling
- ApoB Metabolism and Non-steady State Modeling
- HDL 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 2015 KinMet Meeting, May 6 in San Francisco
The 2015 San Francisco KinMet Meeting will be held Wednesday, May 6 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square. The ATVB meeting starts the following morning, May 7, in the same hotel.
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.
See you in San Francisco.This year, the Robert I Levy Award will be presented to Professor John Kane from the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr Kane will present a lecture titled “Molecular Speciation and Function of High Density Lipoproteins: The New Era”. In addition, Professor Marc Hellerstein from Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology at the University of California, Berkeley and KineMed Inc will be presented with the Mones Berman/Loren Zech Award.
