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 KinMet meeting is free of charge and open to anyone with an interest in lipids and kinetics. The ATVB meeting starts the following morning, May 4, in the same hotel.
This year’s 2017 Robert I Levy and Berman/Zech Awardees will be announced shortly.
A full program of presentations will be available on the 2017 Minneapolis webpage as the program for the May meeting develops.
Past presentations at the KinMet meeting are listed on the Past Meetings page.
