The keynote and invited speakers represented the well-established investigators and rising stars in the field of lipid metabolism in China and abroad. The poster session featured most recent progress from graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty members in China. Poster awards were selected based on the scientific merit, presentation, and questions by a group of senior investigators. Ms. Huiqin Zhong and Juan Tang from INS were selected as the 1st place winners for the poster presentation with several other students recognized for 2nd and 3rd place winners. This conference provided participants with an opportunity for valuable scientific discussions, initiating new research collaborations and friendship.
