Conference Description

Metals play many important roles in biological systems, from essential functional or structural cofactors in proteins, to environmental toxins. The Metals in Biology Gordon Research Conference is one of the longest-running GRCs (starting in 1962). It brings together researchers that span expertise from physical methods and synthetic chemistry through biology and biomedicine. The strength of this multidisciplinary group is reflected in the number of other GRCs that have "spun off" from Metals in Biology. Inorganic biochemistry continues to be an active and vibrant area, resulting in a perennial oversubscription to this GRC. To provide graduate students in this area with the possibility to participate, our community started the first Gordon Research Seminar (in Bioinorganic Chemistry), which has overlapped and met after the Metals in Biology GRC for over 10 years.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.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