http://grc.org/meetings.aspx?year=2011Application DeadlineApplications for this meeting must be submitted by July 10, 2011. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Applications will still be accepted for oversubscribed meetings. However, they will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
The 2011 Gordon Research Conference on Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering will be held July 31 through August 5, 2011 at the Holderness School, Plymouth, New Hampshire. This conference program brings together a diverse group of academic and industrial speakers and discussion leaders comprised of senior and junior thought-leaders who are known for their innovation and high quality of work.
The theme of the 2011 conference will be “The Path from Basic Science and Engineering to Translational Medicine”. Speakers and discussion leaders will present cutting-edge basic research and clinical translation in the area of biomaterial-mediated tissue repair and regeneration. Specific topics are Regeneration: Lessons from Developmental Biology; Engineered Stem Cell Environments: The Path to Therapeutics; Vascularization, Innervation, and Tissue Integration; Advances in Nanotechnology and Materials Science for Biomedicine; Macrophage: Foreign Body Response, Diversity, and Repair; Engineering Neural Interfaces; Lessons from Translational Research. The 2011 program also adheres to the GRC directive of holding vigorous formal and informal discussions between researchers at all career stages. There will be poster sessions organized on topical themes to match the session topics.Preliminary ProgramA list of preliminary session topics and speakers is currently being developed by the Conference Chair and will be available by December 1, 2010.

The Gordon Research Conference on Bioorganic Chemistry was founded in 1992 to bring together scientists from a range of disciplines to present and discuss cutting-edge research at the interface between chemistry and biology. It highlights both fundamental and applied research relevant to academia and industry. To maintain a balance between these areas, the conference is organized by two co-chairs, one from academia and one from industry. The conference emphasizes the presentation of techniques or approaches that are broadly applicable across multiple areas of chemical and biological research. Traditionally, small molecules that probe, modulate, or mimic cellular components or processes as well as studies of biology at the molecular level have been of particular interest.
The 2011 conference will showcase research at the frontiers of bioorganic chemistry in the areas of nucleic acids, neuroscience and neurodegenerative disease, bioenergy, light-driven probes of biological processes, high throughput screening, neglected diseases, carbohydrates, drug discovery, and chemical biology.
All conferees are encouraged to present posters. Poster presenters should submit an abstract with their applications on the GRC web site. A number of poster presenters will be invited to present short talks. Given the popularity of this meeting, submission of applications by early 2011 is strongly encouraged.Preliminary ProgramA list of preliminary session topics and speakers is currently being developed by the Conference Chair and will be available by December 1, 2010.

- 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.
