Welcome to the 51st ICBL conference website

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 51st International Conference on the Bioscience of Lipids, to be held on 7-11 September 2010, in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain.

The overall theme of this year's meeting is:
"The golden era of lipids: Over 50 years of lipoexcitement"

ICBL brings together researchers from different disciplines interested in the bioscience of lipids. The program of the 51st ICBL is composed of 7 symposia containing plenary lectures of renowned scientists and short oral presentations chosen from submitted abstracts (including the BBA Young Speaker Award). In addition, there will be poster sessions (including the ICBL 2010 Poster Awards), and many opportunities for scientific discussions.

Ample time will be provided for the delegates wishing to visit the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum and other touristic sites.

The venue of the meeting is the “Alhóndiga“, an old wine depot, just refurbished, in downtown Bilbao, only 3 minutes walking distance from the Hotel Ercilla, where most participants are expected to stay.

We look forward to meeting you in Bilbao in September 2010.

Yours sincerely,

Félix M. Goñi, José Carlos Fernández-Checa and Antonio Gómez-Muñoz
