Our Mission

We are dedicated to generating knowledge on the roles of lipids in human biology and their impact on human health, and developing novel medicine and technologies for disease management and health promotion, through conducting cutting-edge research and making breakthrough discoveries.

The Goals of LLMT are:

  • To understand the biological effects of lipids, particularly omega-3 fats and their derivatives, and how they work, and to discover new targets or means for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human diseases, especially those related to lipids or fats.
  • To develop innovative technologies and products and translate laboratory discoveries into practical applications.
  • To foster the education and international collaboration in this field and promote the public’s awareness of the role of lipids in human health.
