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.

Farther than fat – Lipidomics in biotech/pharma

Lipotype contributed to an article about lipidomics in biotech and pharma on Technology Networks.


The article in short

Interest in lipidomics has been reignited for both, academia and industry. To cope with that, the article sums up various aspects, developments and differences in lipidomics technology. Such as Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology.

Dr. Christian Klose, Head of Research and Development at Lipotype, had been interviewed to explain how to address the needs and questions of academia and industry. In the end, two researchers from academia and he give brief insights into the future of lipidomics. Both, research- and technology-wise.

A good month for public access to research

July has been a great month. Three new publications with Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology have been put out, and the Lipidomics Resource Center received its first major update. Read more about this!


One month – three publications

This month, three new publications with Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology were published!

Paper 1: Parkinson’s disease
In Parkinson’s, excessive contacts between mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum lead to abnormal lipid trafficking. This stops the release of “sleep” peptides affecting sleep patterns of patients long before they experience motor dysfunctions

Paper 2: vacciness
Adjuvants like the well-established AS03 are agents in vaccines that do not provide immunity but stimulate the immune system. However, the molecular mechanism behind AS03’s adjuvant effect had yet to be fully illuminated. These new results could be applied to design novel vaccine adjuvants

Paper 3: cancer therapeutics
Oncogenic RAS proteins must localize to the plasma membrane to act. The recently described oxanthroquinone G01 disrupts that, affects levels of some lipids and synergizes with other compounds that affect oncogenic RAS proteins. G01 could become a new anti-RAS therapeutic

As always: access the Lipidomics Resource Center to study more publications!


The first major Lipidomics Resource Center update

We strive for scientific excellence, and therefore must hold on to the fact that all science is just as good as the research which precedes it. Therefore, we created the Lipidomics Resource Center which provides access to lipidomics publications and whitepapers to empower your research. However, that is just not enough. Therefore we added a completely new category: “products”!

There is a whole universe of research which you cannot access through reading scientific publications. And that is most of industry research. However, this type of research is reflected by product development and patents. The new category “products” gives you access to exactly this kind of hidden information.

Lipidomics is no longer a thing of the lab. It is out in the world. Now, you can learn about it!
