8th International Singapore Lipid Symposium

March 18–20, 2020

National University of Singapore
Organizer: Prof. Markus R Wenk

The Singapore Lipid Symposium (biennial, since 2006) has rapidly evolved into a key event to keep up to date for novel developments in lipidomics in Asia Pacific. Based on past experience, we are expecting participation of approximately 150-200 from around the world and representation from a wide range of areas in the life sciences across academia and industry.
