The annual Canadian Lipid and Lipoprotein Conference brings together basic and clinician scientists from Canadian research institutions to present their recent, unpublished findings in the field of lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. The cutting edge research conducted by CLC scientists remains at the forefront of biomedical research and continues to advance knowledge toward potential therapies to target important metabolic diseases such as obesity, atherosclerosis, fatty liver disease, Alzheimer’s disease and type 2 diabetes, among others.
