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
  •    High Density Lipoprotein Metabolism and Modeling
  •    ApoB, Lp(a) and apo(a) 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. 

The 2017 Robert I Levy and Berman/Zech Awardees are Dr. Joseph Witztum from UCSD and Dr. Daniel Beard from the University of Michigan Medical School.  Dr. Witztum will be speaking on Advances in Triglyceride-Rich Lipoproteins and Lipoprotein(a) and Dr. Beard will be speaking on The Control of Energetic Status and Mitochondrial Substrate Utilization in Health and Disease.

The program is available on the 2017 Minneapolis webpage and will be updated as the meeting develops.  

Past presentations at the KinMet meeting are listed on thPast Meetings page.
