The Research Group on Lipidomics
GERLI (Groupe d'Etude et de Recherche en Lipidomique) is a scientific society
with an advisory board, created in 1978, and one of the thematic groups of the
French Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (Société Française
de Biochimie et Biologie Moléculaire, SFBBM).
At the European level, the GERLI is associated
with EURO FED LIPID,
European Federation for Science and Technology of Lipids.
The word "Lipidomics" was included in 2002 in our group name, as a new
orientation, referring to a global approach for lipid studies. That new definition
allows our association to federate the various specificities among the lipidologists
community and GERLI members.
GERLI was since 30 years a driving force in the scientific community in organizing
annual meetings. It also stimulates
young scientists in awarding thesis prizes
each year. Lipidomics meetings, with a large panel of themes from fundamental
aspects to pathophysiological roles of lipids, have gathered more than 600 people
since 2003, allowing the formation of a scientific network in that field.
The GERLI is composed of :
- a permanent
executive committee comprising a President, Vice-President, Treasurer
and General Secretary
Scientific Advisory Board supervising the annual conference
