Lipidomics Excellence Award

“strengthen life sciences through lipidomics”

LEA, the Lipidomics Excellence Award, has been created to promote, support and strengthen researchers who are eager to contribute to the progress of life sciences through lipidomics.

Up to three individuals with ongoing research are awarded with comprehensive research prizes to support their projects. Applications are open to all researchers who are eager to strengthen life sciences through lipidomics.

The awardees are selected by a panel composed of internationally renown members of academia, each of them recognized as leading experts in their respective fields.

Project Submission

Submit your research project to win the LEA 2019 and strengthen your research.

The Lipidomics Excellence Award (LEA) has been created to promote, support and strengthen researchers who are eager to contribute to the progress of life sciences through lipidomics. LEA is awarded to up to three winners.

1. Prize 2. Prize 3. Prize
The winner receives the LEA 2019 trophy, a comprehensive, premium lipid analysis package with full statistical analysis and priority status, as well as the logistical costs of bringing the winner to Dresden, Germany to participate in the EMBO workshop “Lipid function in health and disease”. The first price equals a total value of up to 55,000 EUR. The winner receives a comprehensive, premium lipid analysis package with extended report which equals a total value of up to 10,000 EUR. The winner receives a basic lipid analysis package which equals a total value of 1,500 EUR.

LEA recognizes individuals with ongoing research projects which are bound to benefit from lipid analysis. This includes for example: basic science, clinical, medical and pharmacological research, nutrition, diet and food investigations, as well as dermatological and cosmetic explorations. Contributions from academia and/or industry are welcomed equally.

Applications are open to all researchers who are eager to strengthen their research by adding a lipidomics dimension. The work described in the application must have predominantly be done by the applicant, can include results obtained prior to the application and should include a time schedule for the project. If the application is unsuccessful in a given year, it can be resubmitted. We also welcome recommendations for potential awardees who will then be contacted.

Applicants must complete and submit their application form together with all requested additional documents by 30th March 2019. Applications must be sent to the selection panel by email ().

The selection panel is composed of Britta Brügger, Professor for Biochemistry/Chemical Biology at Biochemistry Center Heidelberg University, Pietro De Camilli, Professor for Neuroscience and Cell Biology at Yale School of Medicine, Ari Helenius, Professor emeritus for Biochemistry at ETH Zurich and Kai Simons, Professor and Director emeritus at Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics Dresden and Founder and CEO of Lipotype GmbH. External expertise may be sought.

All applications are evaluated in terms of how they advance lipidomics. Novelty, approach and relevance in their field of research are also factors to be judged.

The winners will be notified until 30th of April 2019. The first prize winner will be invited to the EMBO workshop “Lipid function in health and disease” which takes place 27–30 September 2019 in Dresden, Germany. A press conference will be held to present the project and formally handover the LEA 2019 trophy.

With the help of world-leading lipidomics initiatives, LEA is bound to increase lipidomics accessibility in life sciences.

Lipotype GmbH
(founder, organizer)

Lipotype, the world leading provider for lipid analysis, strives for scientific excellence and global accessibility of lipidomics. Drawing on many years of research experience and a strong academic history, Lipotype believes and recognizes the urge to support researchers who are eager to contribute to the progress of life sciences. Lipotype founded and organizes LEA to achieve the aspired goals.

LIPID MAPS
(supporter)

LIPID MAPS supports the integrative systems-level analyses of multiomics measurements in human physiology and pathophysiology. They have developed the internationally recognised classification for lipids that is now used by virtually all lipid researchers in the world. The LIPID MAPS Gateway hosts structure drawing tools, informatics/statistics tools, protocols and tutorials. LIPID MAPS supports LEA to strengthen researchers’ lipidomics dimension.

SwissLipids
(supporter)

SwissLipids is an expert curated resource that provides a framework for the integration of lipid and lipidomic data with biological knowledge and models. They envision a research atmosphere where deep lipidomic data integration unlocks knowledge. As such, SwissLipids recognizes and supports LEA as an excellent tool to foster research initiative in life sciences through lipidomics.
