Conference Description

Since its inception in 1995, the Biology of Host-Parasite interactions GRC (previously named “Parasitism”) focused at bringing together scientists from different fields of research, but with a common interest in studying the biology of a variety of parasitic diseases such as (but not limited to) malaria, toxoplasmosis, African and American trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, trichomoniasis, giardiasis, schistosomiasis and entamoebiasis. Over the years, the conference has served as a reference to define the current state of various fields, including genetics, immunology, cell biology, biochemistry, vector biology, drug design and gene expression control, as they relate to human and animal diseases.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.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