The Gordon Research Conference on Lipoprotein Metabolism is one of the longest standing conferences in the GRC's 75 year history. The scientific content of the conference has continually evolved since the first meeting held in 1955, titled “Blood” while the very next year the conference was renamed to “Lipide Metabolism” to reflect the intense interest on plasma cholesterol and fatty acid metabolism. Throughout the next 5 decades the meeting has focused on topics aimed at understanding the fate and regulation of circulating lipids in the blood and their relationship to the development of atherosclerosis. Eventually, the conference title was changed again to “Lipoprotein Metabolism” and now alternates yearly with its sister conference on “Atherosclerosis”.
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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Lipoprotein Metabolism" 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.
