Newport, RIwebsite: http://grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2013&program=angiogenApplication DeadlineApplications for this meeting must be submitted by July 7, 2013. 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.
Related Meeting InformationThe Angiogenesis Gordon Research Conference will be held in conjunction with the Angiogenesis Gordon Research Seminar. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Please refer to the Angiogenesis GRS web page for more information.
The 2013 Angiogenesis Gordon Conference will present the latest research on the basic and translational biology of angiogenesis and its functional role in embryonic/organ development and disease states with specific emphasis on cancer progression/metastasis. Mechanistic concepts and molecular details in vascular biology, blood vessel formation, growth, and regression will be covered. Angiogenesis contributes to the emergence and progression of cancer in a complex manner and unraveling the molecular details will have a significant impact on current and future drug development. We also need to determine the composite consequence of angiogenesis inhibition in the setting of cancer in order to provide optimal information to aid therapy development in the clinic. Angiogenesis research will provide better biomarkers to predict and monitor anti-angiogenesis therapy in our patients. This conference is being designed to address the most vital areas pertinent to angiogenesis, seeking to stimulate interactions among the experts and importantly provide invaluable educational opportunity for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and junior investigators.AngiogenesisGordon Research SeminarBiology of Pathological Angiogenesis and Anti-Angiogenesis TherapyAugust 3-4, 2013

GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application as soon as possible. The speaker application deadline is typically 4 months before the start of the meeting, but may vary at the discretion of the Chair. Please refer to the Application Instructions section below for more details (if available).Related Meeting InformationThe Angiogenesis Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the Angiogenesis Gordon Research Conference.

The Gordon Research Seminar on Angiogenesis is a unique platform for graduate students, post-docs, and early career scientists to attend lectures from leaders in the field of angiogenesis and anti-angiogenesis therapy, which aim to introduce, summarize, and highlight key developments in the field. The seminar will also engage junior scientists to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas in an open discussion forum. The focus of this meeting is the biology of angiogenesis in pathological conditions and its inhibition as a therapy strategy in controlling cancer, macular degeneration, and other diseases.
The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 3, 2013. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
Sincerely yours, Seda Gyonjyan, member of Young Biologists Association NGO
- Genes & BehaviorEmerging Model Species, Technologies and Analyses Facilitating Integrative ResearchFebruary 9-14, 2014
Galveston, TXWebsite: http://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2014&program=genesRelated Meeting InformationThe Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Conference was held in conjunction with the Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Seminar. Please refer to the Genes & Behavior GRS web page for more information.
In 2014, the sixth Gordon Research Conference and associated GRS on Genes and Behavior will continue the tradition of bringing together both leading and beginning researchers focusing on investigating behavior in model genetic systems and model behavioral systems. The Conference and Seminar will focus on topics at the interface of behavior, neurobiology, genetics, molecular biology, and evolution and will emphasize the theme of emerging model species, technologies and analyses facilitating integrative research. Talks will cover the use of sequenced genomes across established and emerging organismal models (invertebrates to humans), integration of experimental contexts (field versus laboratory), newly accessibly phenotypes (solitary behavior to social interactions), genetic networks, and levels of analysis (gene, brain, physiology, and populations). Bioinformaticians, behavioral biologists, molecular geneticists, systems biologists, evolutionary biologists and neuroscientists are represented among the speakers so that different perspectives can be evaluated. Ample time is provided for brainstorming. Junior scientists and graduate students are invited to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field. Some poster presenters will be selected for short talks. The goal, of course, is to better understand how genetics influences the development and expression of normal behavior and disorders. All of the invited speakers and discussion leaders are experts in their fields. Special attention has been given to achieving gender balance and to include experts from the diverse disciplines that must be represented to achieve a broadly based understanding of the influences of genes on behavior. The associated Gordon Research Seminar is being organized by and for graduate students and postdocs, with mentorship from a core of senior participants in the main Conference, with the goal of nurturing and preparing junior scientists so they can participate actively and effectively in the main GRC.Genes & Behavior (GRS)Gordon Research SeminarStudying Behavior Through a Cross-Disciplinary Integration of TechniquesFebruary 8-9, 2014
Galveston, TXWebsite: http://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2014&program=grs_genesRelated Meeting InformationThe Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Seminar was held in conjunction with the Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Conference. Please refer to the Genes & Behavior GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Genes & Behavior 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 meeting will focus on recent findings and new technologies associated with the molecular, neurobiological and evolutionary mechanics of behavior. We aim to unite researchers exploring a diverse array of systems, ranging from lab based, genetic approaches to natural studies of heritable behavior with an emphasis on cross-disciplinary work that integrates multiple fields and methods.
