Conference Description

The Gordon Research Conference on Cell Death was initiated in 1995 and continues as a major venue for new breakthroughs in a growing field. Contrary to expectation, millions of cells in the human body die every few minutes by purposeful programmed processes that include apoptosis and other emerging pathways. Two decades of cell death research have uncovered a multitude of cellular pathways and molecular mechanisms that underlie countless human disorders. These evolutionarily conserved pathways interface with virtually all other pathways, making this a diverse field of study. A major goal of this conference is to bring together scientists from many arenas to share their insights.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.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