Course "Lipid mediators in inflammatory processes"

May 2021


The course will provide an interdisciplinary integration of the biologic role of lipids and its metabolites. Throughout the program will be addressed fundamental concepts on the function and study of lipids and their metabolites, their biochemical and nutritional role, as well as their main functions as signaling molecules in inflammatory processes and their clinical implications.
