Conference Description

The GRC on Catecholamines was first held in 1973 and has been held every two years since that time. Having a GRC on Catecholamines is as important today as it was when it began, although the emphasis has evolved from a focus on the peripheral nervous system to a strong interest in the central nervous system. In the last three and a half decades, basic discoveries in the molecular biology of catecholamine receptors and signaling systems have been the driving force in our understanding of central and peripheral nervous system function at many levels. Early catecholamine research focused on identifying specific molecules, signals and behavioral consequences associated with catecholamine function. Now that many core details have been described, catecholamine research is shifting attention towards integrating basic molecular and physiological processes into the larger context of brain circuitry dynamics, behavior and neurological and psychobiological disorders.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Catecholamines" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
