The Board of Directors for the Fredrickson Lipid Research Conference along with the planning committee for the University of Kentucky Cardiovascular Research Day are currently making plans to host the Fredrickson Lipid Research Conference on September 9-11, 2021 in person in Lexington.  Safety of all attendees is our top priority.  Both groups will continue to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and will make a final decision whether to hold the meeting in person by July 1, 2021.
