Welcome to the Scottish Lipid Forum, a group of health care professionals with an interest in lipids, cardiovascular (CV) risk and prevention of CV disease.

Chairman’s Welcome

Dr Jonathan Malo

SLF Chairman

Thank you for visiting our webpage. The Scottish Lipid Forum holds an annual educational meeting every November for lipid and cardiovascular risk specialists across Scotland. Many of us, like myself, are doctors trained in clinical biochemistry who see individuals with dyslipidaemia in an outpatient setting. However the meeting also relies on the input of a wide-range of healthcare professionals, including cardiologists, clinical pharmacologists, clinical geneticists, genetic counsellors, clinical nurse specialists, GPs and paediatricians.

Our aim is to keep up-to-date with the latest in lipidology and cardiovascular risk and to promote best practice across Scotland. And our meeting regularly attracts high-profile speakers in the field from Scotland and beyond. If you are interested in finding out more then please do get in touch using the contact form below.

Scottish Lipid Forum 2020 Virtual Meeting

As you might expect, we will not be running the Scottish Lipid Forum in Crieff this November. However we will be hosting an online meeting throughout the afternoon of Wednesday 18th November 2020 and we would be delighted if you could reserve a spot in your diary to join us.

Having a virtual meeting does have some advantages, and one of those is that we have been able to attract speakers from a bit further afield than usual. So you may be able to enjoy children and pets gate-crashing lipid-related talks from as distant as Germany and North America – in addition to Aberdeen. This year’s programme includes:

  • Inclisiran – Scott Wright, Mayo Clinic, USA
  • Non-HDL cholesterol and lifetime risk – Stefan Blankenberg, UKE Hamburg
  • Hypo-betalipoproteinaemia – Robert Hegele, LHSC, Ontario, Canada
  • Scottish lipid genetics update – Zosia Miedzybrodzka, Aberdeen
  • Lp(a) – Jaimini Cegla, Imperial College London

We are also hoping to run a joint online poster session (with SHARP) the following morning. More details, including how to register, to follow shortly.

Best wishes & kind regards
