Signaling Lipidomics

It is for us a great pleasure to have Prof. Thorsten Hornemann as a guest speaker in our Department at the 24th of June 2021 on the topic of sphingolipid signaling. Th. Hornemann is professor for clinical chemistry and head of the lipidomics research facility at the Institute for Clinical Chemistry, University Zurich. His primary interest is the sphingolipid metabolism where he pioneered by identifying several new lipid metabolic pathways. He and his team developed several unique analytical methods and metabolic labelling techniques to investigate the structure, function and metabolism of sphingolipids with a particular focus on rare and atypical sphingolipid metabolites. He also established several lipid metabolites and lipid based metabolic signatures as diagnostic and prospective biomarkers for cardio-metabolic diseases including NAFLD, CVD, MetS and T2DM.

100 min with ILS

It was with great pleasure to co-organize and see the great interest of our 100 min with ILS podcast. Many thanks to all attendees and a special thanks to the presenters. We really enjoyed the talks on the topics of neurolipidomics https://lipidomicssociety.org/2021/05/17/100-minutes-with-ils-podcast/
