Prof. Anne-Claude Gavin accepts 1st prize of LEA

The laureate of the world’s first Lipidomics Excellence Award, Prof. Dr. Anne-Claude Gavin from the University of Geneva , uses the analysis technology of Dresden based Lipotype GmbH for the next breakthrough in her lipid transfer research. The biochemist draws the world’s first molecular “map of lipid highways”, she is tracing the ways of lipid transfer between the membranes of body cells.


A map of lipid highways
“Latest research shows that the lipid metabolism plays a major role in the development of diabetes, cancer or Alzheimer’s. Once we have a better understanding of the ways certain lipids cause which effect, we may pave the way for new potential treatment approaches”, the laureate explains her research goal. “Lipidomics helps us answering questions we would not even dare to ask without it. It opens doors that may hold the answer to our civilization diseases.”


Lipidomics in diabetes research
Life science researchers of various disciplines discover Lipotype’s Shotgun Lipidomics Analysis for their projects. So does the diabetes research: “Lipidomics is step by step revealing processes and connections that stay hidden with traditional analysis methods”, says Prof. Dr. Michele Solimena, Professor of Molecular Diabetology, Medical School, TU Dresden, Germany and Director of the Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden, a German Center for Diabetes Research. „In diabetes research we make good progress thanks to lipidomics, e.g. it is now possible to define molecular lipid signatures that tell us about the development of non-diabetic to diabetes type 2 and progression towards diabetes complications.”


Deeper insights into the lipid cosmos
The unique Lipidomics Excellence Award rewards innovation and the drive for novelty in researchers who strike out in a new direction using lipidomics. The winner Prof. Dr. Anne-Claude Gavin’s project idea stood out in a strong competition with numerous international scientists and research teams. Ultimately, a top-class independent jury of renowned lipidomics experts awarded the Geneva-based scientist with the first prize equalizing lipid analyses worth 50,000 EUR.

“We want to shine a light on the fact that lipid analyses really make the difference between research and groundbreaking research: by providing new data one gains an even deeper insight into the lipid cosmos. It is high time to seize the potentials. Let us see what there is still to discover“, says Prof. Dr. Kai Simons, Professor and Director Emeritus at Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics Dresden and founder and CEO of Lipotype.


About LEA
LEA, the Lipidomics Excellence Award, promotes researchers who are eager to contribute to the progress of life sciences with generous research prizes. Three individuals with ongoing research are awarded to support their projects. Applications were open to all researchers from academia and industry.

The winner of the first prize received 55,000 EUR worth of analysis services and present their research at the EMBO Workshop “Lipid function in health and disease” (27.-30.09.2019). A press conference was hold to
present the project and formally handover the LEA 2019 trophy.

New method for molecular profiling of adipose tissue

The Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden, a partner of the DZD, and the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus joined their forces with Lipotype GmbH and developed a new shotgun lipidomics method for the molecular profiling of brown and white adipose tissue. The results of this collaborative work have now been published in the journal ́Molecular Metabolism ́.


To better understand adipose tissue
Adipose tissue consists of more than 99% of storage lipids, mainly triglycerides that are stored within the cell in so-called lipid droplets. Nonetheless, the remaining 0.5-1% of lipids are sufficient to build a metabolically active cell in all its complexity.

Despite the enormous importance of adipose tissue in human health and diseases (like diabetes), no standardized method existed so far, to quantitatively and reproducibly analyze its lipidome. Thus, Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden (PLID), German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD), the Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine of the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden (IKL) and Lipotype GmbH chose to tackle this urgent need. Their joint vision of an omics-driven clinic, fueled the development of a shotgun lipidomics protocol for adipose tissue.


A new protocol
This new and validated protocol wants to facilitate the systematic molecular profiling of adipose tissue by providing high reproducibility and linear dynamic range for all lipid classes. Besides covering all types of adipose tissue, it can be used for fatty organs, and can be integrated with further omics approaches used in pre-clinical research.

Lipotype presents the awardees of the Lipidomics Forum 2018

We proudly present the winners of best poster and best scientific talk award at the Lipidomics Forum 2018.


A short history of the Lipidomics Forum
The Lipidomics Forum is a joint effort of the ISAS Dortmund and the Research Center Borstel. The annual symposium is a series of conferences on lipid biology and lipidomics to provide a platform for international acknowledged scientists, students, and young researchers to interact. It does not only cover current research highlights but also offers tutorials on selected methodical topics.

The Lipidomics Forum has become a home for Lipotype. Besides a shared scientific background, we strive for the same goals such as global scientific excellence and exchange. This is why Lipotype began attending and supporting through awards the conference many years ago.


The awardees
The best poster award was won by Bing Peng (middle). She researches blood platelets and their lipid composition which is critical for platelet integrity and functionality. She could show, that the lipidome changes upon platelet activation. Congrats, Bing Peng!

The best scientific talk award was won by Marcus Höring (right). His work aims at the intestinal lipid metabolism and the influence of gut microbia. He made use of isotope labeled fatty acids to achieve that. Congrat, Marcus Höring!

Press Release: Lipotype and Lipoid celebrate their joint IFSCC 2018 Poster Success

Lipotype and Lipoid presented a joint poster featuring the core findings of their skin lipidome research at IFSCC 2018 in Munich. Overwhelmingly positive feedback resulted in placing the poster among the top 10 of all IFSCC 2018 posters.


A successful congress and a great poster
The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists is dedicated to international cooperation in cosmetic science and technology. This year’s congress was about “Cosmetics: Science for Beauty and Lifestyle”.

Lipotype and Lipoid chose the IFSCC to present their findings as the congress focuses on exploring what modern society wants from cosmetics and dermatology. This represents both companies’ consumer oriented research best, which was confirmed on-site by the great feedback of those who visited the poster. Ultimately, the IFSCC committee chose to rank the joint poster of Lipotype and Lipoid among the top 10 of all IFSCC 2018 posters.


The project in short
Lipoid conducted this novel study to investigate skin penetration properties of dermal formulations based on hydrogenated phospholipids. For the first time, the quantitative analysis of both exogenous phospholipids and endogenous skin lipids within a single measurement was demonstrated. The results confirm the properties of hydrogenated phospholipids to penetrate and accumulate in upper epidermal layers. Based on these findings, Lipoid will conduct further investigations to improve delivery and fixation of cosmetic actives.


About Lipoid
Founded over 40 years ago, Lipoid is leading in the development and industrial production of high quality lecithin and phospholipids not only for the pharmaceutical, but also for the cosmetic and dietetic industry. Lipoid is the only company worldwide offering the whole range of natural and synthetic phospholipids in industrial scale. Environmental protection and sustainability determines the company’s strategy within all phases of the value chain. This long-standing expertise, in combination with the exceptional quality of the products enables the customers to develop and market innovative products for the benefit of the general public.
