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 2018 KinMet Meeting, Wednesday May 9 in San Francisco
The 2018 KinMet Meeting will be held Wednesday, May 9 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square 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 10, in the same hotel.
The 2018 Robert I Levy and Berman/Zech Awardees will be announced in early 2018.
The program is available on the 2018 San Francisco webpage and will be updated as the meeting develops.
Past presentations at the KinMet meeting are listed on the Past Meetings page.
