The Gordon Research Seminar on Angiotensin is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
In 2016, the theme of the
meeting will be on research translation and how to get your ideas to the market
to improve clinical outcomes. The meeting will showcase the latest advances in
the field as well as new technologies for research and will cover a wide range
of topics including inflammation, cardiovascular disease, diabetes,
reproduction/pregnancy and cancer.
This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Angiotensin" Gordon Research Conference (GRC)
. Refer to the associated GRC program page
for more information.
The conference also gratefully acknowledges a contribution from Gary Smith.
