2017-SLC Meeting-Preliminary Programme


 

XII Sphingolipid Club Meeting

          and

  SLC Advanced Course

The Sphingolipid Club was founded on October 2001, by a group of Italian scientists, with the idea to bring together researchers interested in sphingolipid biology, biochemistry, chemistry, pathophysiology, clinical. 

At the XII Sphingolipid Club Meeting, young and senior basic scientists and clinical researchers are brought together to share expertise and open collaborations, on the role of sphingolipids in health and disease.

This year, in addition to the regular Meeting, an Advanced Course has been scheduled, reserved to young students and post-docs who firstly approach research in the Sphingolipid field. Well-established qualified scientists will present comprehensive lectures and have informal discussions with young researchers in a friendly atmosphere.
