ICBL 2022

4 September 2022, 2:00 PM - 7 September 2022, 4:30 PM

Montréal, Quebec, Canada

The roots of the International Conference on the Bioscience of Lipids (ICBL) can be traced back to 1953.
This was probably the first international meeting on lipid biology and chemistry and its success became evident from the subsequent series of high-quality annual meetings in venues throughout Europe, and occasionally in non-European countries. 
The Founding Fathers of ICBL are Sune Borgstrom, Christian de Duve and Konrad Bloch who went on to become Nobel Laureates

"Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 62nd edition of the International Conference on the Bioscience of Lipids (ICBL). The thematic of this year’s conference will be Lipids in Metabolic Health and Disease.

This is the first time that the ICBL will be held in Montreal, Canada and this year’s program will provide an exceptional showcase for research in the field of lipid metabolism and related diseases. After the last two pandemic years where most meetings have been held virtually, we are happy to invite you to Montreal for a face-to-face meeting.

This year the ICBL symposium will focus on the role of various lipids in different metabolic pathways and their impact on disease development. This will be a great opportunity for researchers and students to interact and create new bridges that link fundamental and applied research for disease treatment. We have the privilege of attending the Van Deenen lecture given by Dr. Christine Desrosiers of the University of Montreal, entitled: "Enhancing disease mechanism and biomarker discovery in humans using untargeted comprehensive plasma lipidomics".

This annual conference will also look to support the next generation of researchers by offering 3 oral presentation and 6 poster awards. In addition, special sessions will be organized by the student ICBL committee and provide trainees with opportunities to develop important professional skills.

The conference will take place at the Coeur des sciences in downtown Montreal between September 4 and 7. This central conference venue will allow you to enjoy our vibrant city and provide you with easy access to many tourist attractions. 

We hope that you will join us in September in Montreal, the heart of our beautiful Québec. 

Your local organizing committee"
