NOX Family NADPH Oxidases (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

NOX Biology: From Mechanistic Insights Toward Functional Understanding


June 4-5, 2016


Waterville Valley
Waterville Valley, NH


Adam A. Nabeebaccus & Leonardo Y. Tanaka

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on NOX Family NADPH Oxidases 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.

The focus of this year's meeting is to explore structure-function correlations in Nox biology. We plan to cover structural insights and their functional roles from the single cell to the complex organism, ultimately gaining knowledge of Nox in a wide variety of physiological and pathological situations. A highlight of this meeting is our strong focus on mentorship, which will pervade the entire program. The program will consist of scientific sessions selected from submitted abstracts for oral presentation, poster sessions and small-group workshops with our mentors, chosen specifically for their expertise at the forefront of the Nox field and their approachable manner. Thus we welcome graduate students and post-docs to submit an abstract and join in this highly interactive and cutting-edge forum.
