Notch Signaling in Development, Regeneration & Disease (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Notch Signaling During Development, Adult Stage Tissue Maintenance, and Disease


July 30-31, 2016


Bates College
Lewiston, ME


Mustafa Turkoz & Rolake Alabi

Meeting Description

This will be the second Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Notch Signaling in Development, Regeneration & Disease for young scientists. Notch GRS meetings are organized by young scientists with the support of leading scientists from the associated Notch GRC. This unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education will be an outstanding opportunity for young scientists to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

In this second Notch GRS, we will focus on the role of Notch signaling during development, adult stage tissue maintenance, and disease. The scope will span from model organisms to humans and will integrate biochemical, cell biological, structural and bioinformatic approaches. All applicants from diverse scientific and medical fields of Notch signaling are welcome to attend this meeting to exchange ideas and data, and to facilitate the translation of basic knowledge into clinical settings such as cancer therapeutics and regenerative medicine.

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Notch Signaling in Development, Regeneration & Disease" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
