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.

Given the issues proposed in this course, we will select students from Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, Medicine, Biotechnology and Nutrition postgraduate (master's degree or Ph.D.) or postdoctoral programs. We will request a student’s curriculum vitae, motivation letter and letter of recommendation from the current or past advisor. We will prioritize students who are currently working or with prospects to work in the near future on issues related to the contents of this course.
