Lipoprotein Metabolism (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Recent Advances in Lipoprotein Physiology and Related Disease


June 11-12, 2016


Waterville Valley
Waterville Valley, NH


Scott M. Gordon & Marjolein A. van den Boogert

Meeting Description

Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

At the 2016 Lipoprotein Metabolism GRS, young scientists will present their recent unpublished work in a friendly, low-intimidation environment. Presented topics will cover a broad range of interests related to lipoprotein physiology and cardiovascular disease. The meeting will also contain a mentoring component, led by an established investigator, with the goal of providing valuable career advice to attendees.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Lipoprotein Metabolism" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
