A practical PhD course on Lipid Biochemistry, Technology, Application and Analysis (4 ECTS)

The objective of the course is to introduce the participants to practical applications in lipid biochemistry, lipid nutrition, biotechnology and advanced lipid analytical methods through lectures and laboratory experiments. The following areas will be covered: modification of lipids and lipid processing, lipid metabolism, lipophilic vitamins, lipid oxidation and antioxidants, and different lipid analytical methods including methods for analysis of lipophilic contaminants. The course is a mix of lectures and practical lab work.

Due to the uncertainties related to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, the course might be arranged as an online course. In this case, the laboratory part will not be carried out.

Time: 22 – 26 June 2020.

SINTEF BIOPRO receive food approval

As earlier mentioned, the Norwegian R&D institute SINTEF Ocean, launched their pilot plant Centre for bio-processing and Ingredients Research, BIOPRO, in 2017 (more here).

This week SINTEF received a temporary approval for food processing, with manufacture number TL17, from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority .

– This enable us to provide our partners with food grade oil samples, that can be used in market research, among others, says SINTEF in a comment.

Cecilia Tullberg to defend her PhD-thesis

Nordic Lipidforum member Cecilia Tullberg will defend her Phd-thesis on Friday 2 February 2018. The title of her work is Oxidation of marine oils during in vitro gastrointestinal digestion and its effects on stress in human intestinal Caco-2 cells. Cecilia has done her work at the Department of Biology and Biological Engineering – Food and Nutrition Science, Chalmers University of Technology. Prof. Ingrid Undeland has been Cecilias supervisor.

For those of you that have the possibility to witness Cecilias presentation, the defend will be held at Sal KC (Kemihuset, Chalmers, Gothenburg) 1000 o’clock.

Young Scientist Award 2017

The Nordic Lipidforum Young Scientist Award 2017 were this year awarded Elina Zailer from University of Würzburg, Marika Kalpio at University of Turku, and Ken Cheng from Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet. The diploma was given to the awardees during the Nordic Lipidforum Symposium and EFL Congress dinner at Uppsala Castle.

Ken Cheng, Elina Zailer, and Marika Kalpio awarded The Nordic Lipidforum Young Scientist Award 2017. Bengt Herslöf and Ingrid Undeland giving the diploma.

The 5th Nordic Lipidforum Academy

12 participants attended the 5th Nordic Lipidforum Academy 2017, prior to the Symposium and the EFL Congress. The Academy was held at Biomedicinske Centrum at Uppsala University. The Lipidforum Academy has now been established as a tradition, and attendees both from industry and PhD-students from several universities from all over Europe, spend five days with lectures and project works. Hopefully the 6th Nordic Lipidforum Academy will take place prior to the 30th Nordic Lipidforum Symposium 2019 in Horsnes, Denmark!

The Nordic Lipidforum wish to thanks especially our local organiser, Dr. Kumari Ubhayasekera!
