The LIPID MAPS Webinar Series will feature presentations from several lipidomics experts who will introduce basic features related to structure, function, and metabolism, and discuss biochemistry and analysis of various lipid classes.

Al has studied sphingolipids for nearly forty years and his laboratory and collaborators have contributed to our understanding of sphingolipid structure and function, metabolism, and interrelationships between sphingolipids and disease. He and Dr. Cameron Sullards, who is now with Avanti Polar Lipids, were the directors of the Sphingolipid and Glycosphingolipid Core Laboratory for the first decade of LIPID MAPS, and he now serves as a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee.
