We are excited to announce that the 9th International Ceramide Conference (iCC7) will be held May 1-5, 2017 in Port Jefferson, Long Island, New York, USA. We appreciate your considering financial support of this meeting, your support would provide travel fellowships to students that do not have sufficient funding to attend the conference.

Based on past attendance, we expect approximately 150 selected participants, and as with the previous 8 meetings, we plan on having the majority of senior scientists and leaders in the field. The topics in general will cover the biochemical and physiological roles of ceramide/sphingosine phosphate metabolism and signaling with emphasis on pathobiology of cancer, inflammation, infectious diseases, and diabetes. 

Contributors will be recognized in the meeting brochure and on the conference web-site. There will also be opportunities to advertise in the brochure or on the web-site, and tables at the conference site will be provided to contributors for vendor displays. The majority of the funds we are seeking are specifically to pay the travel and registration costs for graduate students attending the iCC7. The levels of sponsorship with specific benefits are outlined below.
