Abstract submission open:

The 41st Scientific meeting of the ELC will be held at the Evangelische Akademie in Tutzing, Germany, from September 10-13, 2018.

The overall aim of the ELC meeting is to bring researchers together within the field of lipoproteins in relation, but not limited, to cardiometabolic disease. The ELC meeting is a relatively small informal meeting that can be attended by only approx. 110 participants. The registration fees are low (€200-400 depending on age), and include participation in the scientific sessions, accommodation and all meals.

The concept is a good mix of presentations by research investigators, postdocs and graduate students. Abstracts are selected according to their scientific merit, and it has become one of the traditions that many graduate students give presentations. Young investigators automatically participate in the competition for Young Investigator Oral and Poster Awards, which include a financial reward.

We look forward to meet you in wonderful Tutzing at the Evangelische Akademie in Tutzing, Bavaria, Germany! To be able to be selected to attend this year’s meeting, please make sure to submit your abstract by May 01, 2018.
