  The International Congress on Lipid and Atherosclerosis (ICoLA) 2021 will be held at Conrad Seoul, Korea on Sep 10-11, 2021 (Hybrid). This meeting will include not only the latest results of research on clinical lipidology and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, but also those on basic sciences, genetic/ epigenetic studies, and nutritional sciences. In this regard, it will provide chance for participants (cardiologists, endocrinologists, vascular biologists, nutritionists, and much more) with insights into the field of lipid and atherosclerosis.

  The Scientific Program Committee (chair: Dr Sang-Hak Lee, secretaries: Drs SungWan Chun and Chan Joo Lee), have planned six plenary lectures, 21 symposia, and two joint symposia to promote exchanging knowledge and opinions among field leaders and participants. Plenary lectures include epidemiology, optimal medical therapy for coronary plaque, hypertriglyceridemia, single cell sequencing, genetic/epigenetic approach, and smooth muscle cells in atherosclerosis.

  Symposia are prepared on cutting edge sciences in different sessions. Clinical sessions include: risk assessment, TG metabolism, atherosclerosis imaging, current lipid-lowering therapy, PCSK9 inhibitors and omega-3 PUFA, novel therapeutic agents, studies on platelets, Lp(a) and inflammation, and familial hypercholesterolemia. Basic and translational sessions include: vascular immune cells, role of endothelial cells, influence of metabolic dysfunction, new techniques in atherosclerosis research, lipoprotein metabolism and regulation, studies on high-density lipoprotein, and noncoding RNAs. Nutrition sessions include: Korean Dietary Reference Intakes and lifestyle/nutrition modification.

  We look forward to seeing you in ICoLA 2021.
