The Southeastern Regional Lipid Conference (SERLC) is one of the largest and most established academic meetings on lipid biology research in the United States. The main themes are sphingolipids, phospholipids, and eicosanoids, their analysis by state of the art lipidomics, and the determination of their biological function in cell signaling and cell biology. Additional topics covered are the structural and functional analysis of unique sphingolipids and phospholipids in plants, fungi, bacteria, and infectious diseases, the theme for this year’s conference.
