   The accumulation of fat in tissues not suited for lipid storage has
   deleterious consequences on organ function, leading to cellular damage
   that underlies diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Illustrating
   the relationship is the fact that numerous effective therapeutics
   ameliorate metabolic disease symptoms by limiting the inappropriate
   deposition of fat in peripheral tissues (e.g. thiazolidinediones,
   metformin, or statins). Recent advances in genomics and lipidomics
   offer researchers an opportunity to make a substantial leap in the
   understanding and treatment of pathogenic conditions resulting from
   the excessive production and/or underutilization of fat. This meeting
   reviews these areas, placing specific emphasis on the following: (a)
   relationships between ectopic lipid deposition and metabolic disease;
   (b) mechanisms through which lipid excess alter tissue function; ©
   regulatory processes that control lipid storage and metabolism; and
   (d) technological advances in the area of lipid analysis (i.e.
   lipidomics).
