Kern Lipid Conference

The first Aspen Lipid Conference was held in 1985 to promote science relating to the broad areas of lipid, cholesterol, bile acid and lipoprotein metabolism. In 1996, to honor the legacy of Fred Kern, Jr., the conference was renamed to The Kern Aspen Lipid Conference by an unanimous vote of the Board of Directors.

The emphasis of the Conference is to provide an open forum where scientists from both academia and industry can meet and discuss science related to lipid metabolism.
