‘Journées Chevreul’ 2023 at the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris

To celebrate the 80th birthday of SFEL -a scientific association promoting dissemination of knowledge in the field of lipids- and to thank all Chevreul Medalists who have contributed to the success of the ‘Journées Chevreul’, SFEL is pleased to announce the exceptional ‘Journées Chevreul’ which will be held on January 2023 in a famous place of science in Paris, the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN). MNHN is one of the birthplaces of chemistry where Chevreul worked for more than 40 years and has isolated, characterized and named cholesterol.

These anniversary ‘Journées Chevreul’ will provide an overview of all the research themes on lipids supported by SFEL/AFECG since its creation and will be the occasion to award the Chevreul Medal 2023 to Michel Linder (LiBio, ENSAIA Nancy). They will take place on 3 consecutive days from January 18th to 20th. They will be boarded with an opening ceremony about Chevreul and SFEL followed by a series of lectures delivered by both Chevreul Medalists and invited speakers. Oral and poster communications will be also presented after selection. They will be organized in collaboration with Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) and our colleagues from three french scientific societies, the Groupe d’Etude et de Recherche en Lipidomique (GERLI), the Groupe Lipides Nutrition (GLN) and the Académie d'Agriculture de France (AAF), around the following 6 main themes (with scheduled speakers):

  • Opening Session on SFEL & Michel-Eugène CHEVREUL – Claude Leray (FRA), Christian Ferault (FRA), Bernard Bodo (FRA), Hervé Plessix (FRA)
  • Introduction Session on Omega3 in the Brain – Jean-Marie Bourre (FRA), Richard Bazinet (CAN)
  • Genomic/Varietal selection & Oilseed Sector – André Pouzet (FRA), Thierry André (FRA), Jean-Denis Faure (FRA)
  • Lipids, Nutrition and Human Health – Frédéric Carrière (FRA), Marie-Caroline Michalski (FRA), Cécile Gladine (FRA)
  • Lipids in the Ocean, Microorganisms – Peter Nichols (AUS), Marie Vagner (FRA), Michel Linder (FRA)
  • Lipids & Brain – Stephen Cunnane (CAN), Vincenzo Di Marzo (ITA), Fabien Pifferi (FRA)
  • Lipochemistry, Emulsion & New Technologies - Charlotte Jacobsen (DNK), Romain Valentin (FRA), Laurianne Simon (FRA)

The complete scientific program is available on line.
