Conference Description

The biennial Molecular Cell Biology Gordon Conference brings together and fosters discussion among scientists studying various aspects of eukaryotic cell biology and its relation to human medicine and disease. A key feature of the conference is its diversity and its outstanding collection of world-renowned scientists representing a wide range of important areas in cell biology, including cell division, chromatin organization, organelle biogenesis, development, protein and vesicular trafficking, genetic diseases, as well as new technology applicable to cell biology. Most important is the emphasis this meeting has on how molecular and cell biology are being used to address fundamental issues relating to human diseases. The guiding principle for this meeting is that creative and powerful solutions to research problems are often catalyzed by a broad knowledge of diverse biological research areas and experimental approaches. The program is thus designed both to provide a general educational forum and to promote informal and productive communication between investigators studying disparate sub-specialties of the field. As at other Gordon Conferences, there are abundant opportunities for informal discussion among speakers, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
