Conference Description

The Gordon Research Conference on Protein Cofactors, Radicals and Quinones was initiated in 1990 and has since been held bi-annually. The conference focus is on the remarkable ways that enzymes have evolved to generate and utilize sophisticated cofactors. Our knowledge in this fascinating field is continuously extending in novel directions. Conference highlights are radical-containing cofactors, assembly of complex metal cofactors, metal cofactors involved in radical reactions, cofactors derived from covalently cross-linked amino acid residues, and quinone cofactors derived from aromatic side chains. This rapidly developing field with ample medical implications brings together scientists from a variety of disciplines in chemistry and biology, including mechanistic enzymology, structural biology, metallobiochemistry, bioorganic chemistry, molecular biology, spectroscopy and computational biochemistry.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
