Argentine lipidology took its first steps more than 30 years ago with the Lipid Club, a group of professionals who, at the beginning of the 1970s, decided to share the incipient knowledge that was emerging on lipid metabolism. Dr. Juan Carlos Rivas, Dr. Biruta Sermukslis, Dr. Smud and Dr. Osvaldo Brusco met regularly, and soon Dr. Pedro Lipszyc joined the group.
In parallel, work began in the lipid laboratory of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry directed by Dr. Regina Wikinski and then Dr. Laura Schreier.
During the 1980s and 1990s, some work and discussion groups promoted the dissemination of knowledge that was expanding at a dizzying pace. The germ that would later give rise to our Society can be identified in the memorable evenings that Dr. Carlos Cúneo organized at the end of the 90's in the city of Salta.
When it seemed that Argentine lipidology ceased to have a discussion forum, at the beginning of 2000, the Argentine Society of Lipids was born under the name of Foro Argentino de Lípidos and held its first Annual Meeting in the city of Córdoba in November 2003. No The location is a coincidence: its first president, Dr. Alberto Lorenzatti, was the fervent promoter of the creation of a Scientific Society that deals with these issues that convene us today. Other presidents followed him: Alfredo Lozada, Juan Carlos Rivas, Ricardo Rey, Gerardo Elikir, Daniel Aimone and Eduardo Esteban.
