Mechanisms of Cell Signalling
This conference focuses on small G protein signal transduction. The conference began in 1999, under the leadership of Louis Lim. It has subsequently been chaired by Ed Manser, Dafna Bar Sagi, Shuh Narumiya, and Jonathan Chernoff. The conference covers small G protein signaling from a wide variety of angles, including structural biology, cell and molecular biology, and the role of small G protein signaling in normal physiology and in disease processes. Related topics, such as upstream regulator and downstream effectors of small GTPases, are also represented at this conference. "Mechanisms of Cell Signaling" has from its inception been a "floating" GRC, meeting in Singapore, Oxford, Ventura, and Hong Kong.
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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
