Conference Description

The Gordon Research Conference on "Oxygen Radicals" is designed to provide chemists, biologists, biochemists, cell biologists, clinicians, and other biomedical scientists with state of the art knowledge on reactive oxygen species and their interactions with other radicals, including nitric oxide, in chemical and biological systems. This research conference is held every two years, usually in Ventura, California. Fourteen conferences have been held since 1981 and they have proven to be extremely productive based on the large number of applicants and the post-meeting evaluations. Typical sessions are: oxidants and antioxidants in infection and inflammation, emerging technologies and biomarkers in free radical biology; signal transduction involving reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, NADPH oxidases, thiol oxidation, lipid derived radicals and nitric oxide. The invited speakers represent current and future leaders in free radical research in pulmonary, cardiovascular and diseases and inflammation and in toxicology. An honarary lecture at the end of the conference is presented by one of the outstanding long term investigators in the field. Two separate poster sessions of two days each are also scheduled.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.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