Lipigon presents at the ELC scientific meeting in Tutzing, Germany
Lipigon Pharmaceuticals AB ("Lipigon") is presenting at the European Lipoprotein Club's scientific meeting in Tutzing, Germany, on September 11-14.
Fredrik Landfors, Clinical Scientist at Lipigon, will give a presentation at the European Lipoprotein Club (ELC) annual scientific meeting that starts today in Tutzing, Germany.
"ELC is one of the most pivotal gatherings for researchers in our field. I look forward to presenting Lipigon's genetic validation of ANGPTL4 as a drug target. It is of great importance to present data that strengthens and validates ANGPTL4. Our target is one of few new targets with strong scientific support for reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases by lowering blood fats," says Fredrik Landfors.
ELC is the oldest and most active European network in the lipid field. It was established in 1977 and Thomas Olivecrona was a member of the first organizing committee. The primary goal of ELC is to facilitate collaboration and the exchange of ideas in basic and clinical research concerning lipoproteins (complexes of blood lipids). Today, the network comprises over 500 researchers from more than 20 countries across Europe and the world, with its membership continually expanding.
Stefan K. Nilsson, Lipigon's CEO, also participates in the conference.
"ELC is a significant conference for us to attend, both to showcase our results to the experts advising major pharmaceutical companies in our field and to stay abreast of the latest developments in the research field while assessing competition and new ideas," says Stefan K. Nilsson.
