Gordon Research Conference

Circadian Regulation Across Physiological Systems, Lifespan and Pathological Conditions


July 16-21, 2017


Stoweflake Conference Center
Stowe, VT Site Information


Amita Sehgal

Vice Chair:
Charalambos P. Kyriacou

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 18, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting Description

The 2017 Chronobiology GRC will bring together scientists from diverse research areas ranging from molecular aspects of chronobiology to physiological and organismal rhythms to translational studies highlighting the importance of circadian clocks for health and disease. The program incorporates non-circadian rhythms as well as circadian analysis in many diverse organisms (from bacteria to man) thereby integrating research across all levels – from fundamental to applied science.

In an attempt to identify areas that should be prioritized for future research, the conference will also highlight topics under-represented at previous circadian meetings. Discussion of the rules that should apply to circadian studies will benefit newcomers to the field and potentially standardize approaches across laboratories. Trainees will benefit from an enhanced educational environment and the opportunity to interact with leaders in the field.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Chronobiology" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.


Preliminary Program

The topics and speakers for the conference sessions are displayed below (italics denote discussion leaders). The Conference Chair is currently developing their detailed program, which will include the complete meeting schedule, as well as the talk titles for all speakers. The detailed program will be available by March 16, 2017. Please check back for updates.
