Conference Description

The Bones and Teeth Gordon Research Conference was established in 1954. The first Chair, Dr. Felix Bronner, then of Rockefeller University, now of the University of Connecticut, and an active participant of every meeting since 1954, petitioned the GRC to establish the conference in order to fulfill the need for a multi-disciplinary forum for presentation of cutting edge research, and the open discussion of the chemistry, physiology, pathology and metabolism of bone and bone-related tissues by both senior and junior investigators alike. In the early years, topics of the B&TGRC focused on calcium metabolism, the matrix of the special mineralized tissues of the body, calcified cartilage bones and teeth, and the mechanisms by which matrix mineralization occurs. By virtue of the fact that bone is a target organ of many endocrine systems, hormonal control of bone metabolism by vitamin D, parathyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone related peptide, sex steroids, to name a few, have been prominent topics throughout the years. As new technologies evolved, so has the scope of the conference, with inclusion of stem cell and osteoblast biology, bone resorption and osteoclast biology, and the developmental biology of cartilage, bones and teeth in the programs. All of these subjects have provided the basis for sessions related to the mechanisms by which alterations in skeletal development and metabolism result in genetic and acquired diseases of mineralized tissues, such as Osteogenesis imperfecta and other forms of skeletal dysplasias, and hormonal and age-related changes in bone mass, respectively. The B&TGRC now encompasses all of these areas along with more recent topics such as signaling pathways induced by the Transforming Growth Factor superfamily, Fibroblast Growth Factors, Wnts and others, and the transcriptional control of bone cell activity. The conference includes Poster Sessions and short talks selected from posters in order to provide young investigators the opportunity to present their work, and Chairs aim to provide ample opportunity for discussion. The meeting concludes with outstanding Special Guest Lecturers, followed by a special social event. Through the years, the B&TGRC has been considered by all to be one of the special conferences in the field, due to small size and the atmosphere created by the close interactions between attendees.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Bones and Teeth" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
