Introducing Featured Open Lectures

This is a new initiative from the Society to highlight our online educational platform EAS ACADEMY. Every other month we select one interesting lecture from a recent course or congress and make it available for free, to members and non-members.

Open Lecture July-August 2020

HDL-cholesterol doesn´t seem to be the “good cholesterol” any more…

In his review talk, Professor Chapman summarizes recent advances in our understanding of the role of HDL particles in the development of atherosclerosis focusing on both lipidomics and proteomics studies. Identification of novel markers of HDL particle function seems to be a crucial issue as HDL-cholesterol has failed to fulfil the criteria of a universally acceptable marker of HDL particle functionality.
Further discussion is being directed to therapeutic options we may expect in the area of influencing HDL metabolic pathways in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis.


Professor John Chapman is Director of the Dyslipidemia and Atherosclerosis Research Unit of the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) at the Pitié-Salpétrière Hospital in Paris, France, affiliated to the Medical Faculty of the Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris.
