Amity University Haryana organized two days International Symposium
““Omega-3 Fatty acids help in reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseas”
Prof Preston Mason of Harvard: Lipid Meeting 2019 at Amity University
Haryana
December 12-13, 2019:Amity University Haryana organized two days
International Symposium on “Lipid in the forefront: A lot more to discover”
under the patronage of renowned Biotechnologist of India Prof. Rajendra
Prasad, Dean, Research& Director, Amity Institute of Biotechnology and Amity
Institute of Integrative Sciences and Health in which scientist of global
outreach shared a common platform here in the university where they
brought together various facts and discuss their scientific findings on lipid
biology.
Lipids, commonly called “fats” are infamous for contributing to weight gain,
however lipids in optimum amount are a healthy and important part of our
diet. Prof Preston Mason of Harvard Medical School discussed the new
insights into mechanisms of action for Omega-3 Fatty acids in regulating the
cholesterol and heart disease. They play several important roles in our body
including providing energy and helping in proper digestion and absorption of
food. Lipidomics is the popular platform to identify and profile the entire lipid
repertoire in a particular cell, be it bacteria, plants or animals. The study of
lipids and their role in cell dynamics, signaling health and diseases are
emerging as frontal areas of research. We at Amity Lipidomics Research
Facility – ALRF are actively doing research on various aspects of Lipid Biology
pertaining to host pathogen interaction, drug resistance and debilitating
diseases such as cancer and tuberculosis.
In the continuation of the National Symposium held three years before, AUH
inaugurated the International Symposium in the presence of eminent scientist

Prof Preston Mason of Harvard Medical School, USA along with Prof. Judith
Berman of Tel Aviv University, Israel, Prof Robert Arkowitz, University of Nice
and Prof Martine Bassilana from Université Côte d'Azur, France joined hands
with the SERB Distinguished Fellow and Eminent Lipid ScientistProf.Amitabha
Chattopadhyay of CCMB, Hyderabadalongwith Prof. K. N. Balaji IISc.
Bengaluru, Dr. Saikat Bhattacharjee from RCB, Faridabad, Dr. Shailza Singh
NCCS, Pune, Dr Arvind Ramanathan, INSTEM, Dr Anand Bachhawat IISER,
Mohali, Dr Malathi Srinivasan, CFTRI& Dr Avinash Bajaj, RCB, with research
scholar from all over the country to discuss and work together which will
create an infusion of scientific creativity and will help the knitted ‘lipid
community’ at the international level where new ideas will bloom and
thoughts will be shared to serve a platform for interaction between scientists
and biotechnology industries to further research and innovation in this
promising field.
Prof. Judith Berman of Tel Aviv University, Israel gave her talk on cellular and
genetic consequences of azole antifungal treatment, including the role of
intracellular drug targeting, on pathogenic yeasts Candida, a causative agent
for many hospitals acquired infections.
Prof. Amitabha Chattopadhyay, CCMB, Hyderabad described the importance of
Cholesterol, the predominant sterol in higher eukaryotes, discussed its
crucialrole in maintaining the structure and organization of cell membranes,
and is involved in essential cellular processes in health and disease.
Prof Robert Arkowitz, University of Nice presented the role of acidic
phospholipids function and distribution in a fungal pathogen management. He
also discussed role of G proteins as critical component for filamentous growth,
antifungal drug sensitivity and virulence in the opportunistic fungal pathogen
Candida albicans
Prof Martine Bassilana from Université Côte d'Azur, France shared her finding
on the Candida albicans ability to switch between different morphological
states is associated with its adaptability and pathogenicity. She elaborated the
mechanism of active endocytosis to counterbalance exocytosis at the hyphal
tip and role of membrane lipids and proteins.

Prof. K. N. Balaji IISc. Bengaluru delivered a talk on the role of accumulated
lipids in mitigating the effects of anti-TB drugs against the intracellular
bacteria.
Dr Arvind Ramanathan, INSTEM, discussed the role of arachidonic acid
derived lipids in cellular senescence. He described how the senescence-
associated secretory phenotype (SASP) has been characterized for secreted
proteins that participate development, wound healing, inflammation and
many age-related pathologies during the senescence process and longevity.
While addressing the symposium Dean Research, Amity University Haryana
and & Director Amity Institute of Biotechnology said “This meeting developed
a successful lipid global research forum to discuss, think and plan about lipids
and beyond at Amity University Haryana. Many novel collaborative research
ideas developed among the scientists as an immediate outcome of this
meeting. This forum will also help not only international collaborative
research but for multi-consortium, bilateral international funds”.
Scientists and active researchers from several research institutes namely IISc,
CFTRI, NCBS, IISER, NII, CCMB, JNU, RCB, University of Hyderabad, NCCS were
brought together at Amity University Haryana to discuss the relevance of
lipids in cell organization and dynamics, signaling and various disease and
their role in potential therapeutic strategies. These biological and biomedical
scientists in our country including Dr Durba Sengupta, Dr Shobhan Sen, Dr
Jaydeep Bhattacharya, Dr Zeeshan Fatima and Dr Ashutosh Singh, among
others, shared their recent findings in the broad area of lipid metabolism and
dynamics with an eye towards future translational efforts.
Indeed, scientist visited recently developed “Central Instrumentation
Research Facility – CIRF” https://www.amity.edu/gurugram/central-instrument-research-
facility.aspxof the university.
Maj. Gen. B. S. Suhag (Retd.), Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof (Dr.) Padmakali
Banerjee, Pro Vice Chancellor, Maj. Gen. G S Bal(Retd.), Sq. Ld. S K
Singh(Retd.), Dr. Ujjaini Das Gupta, Dr Kaustav Badhyopadhay, Dr Amit Kumar

Pandey, Dr Machiavelli Singhwere present among other university faculty
member, staff and research students in the symposium.
