Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 9, 2017. 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.
The 2017 Gordon Research Conference titled "Wnt Signaling: A Pathway Implicated in Animal Development, Stem Cell Control and Cancer" seeks to advance our understanding of how the highly conserved Wnt signaling pathway influences developmental processes and disease. The proposed meeting will cover a broad spectrum of biological systems, approaches and methodologies and bring together a diverse group of scientists, including structural biologists, embryologists, and stem cell and cancer researchers.
The topics and speakers for the conference sessions are displayed below (italics denote discussion leaders). The Conference Chair is currently developing their detailed program, which will include the complete meeting schedule, as well as the talk titles for all speakers. The detailed program will be available by April 6, 2017. Please check back for updates.
