Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health & Disease
Endothelial Pathogenic Pathways: Challenges and Opportunities for Translation
July 6-11, 2014
Melia Golf Vichy Catalan Business and Convention Center
Girona, Spain

Related Meeting Information
The Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health & Disease Gordon Research Conference was held in conjunction with the Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health & Disease Gordon Research Seminar. Please refer to the Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health & Disease GRS web page for more information.

The 2014 Gordon Research Conference on "Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health and Disease" will bring together leading scientists with a common interest in understanding the role of the endothelium in health and in disease. Topics covered will include novel endothelial signaling pathways, imaging studies, organ regeneration, vascular inflammation, tumor angiogenesis, and translational research in ocular and cardiovascular diseases. The cross-disciplinary nature of this meeting is widely acclaimed and will allow attendees exposure to cutting edge research in endothelial biology. All attendees are encouraged to submit an abstract for poster presentation. Several "late-breaking topic" abstracts will be selected for oral presentations during the main program. Applicants will be accepted from a diverse mix of established investigators, junior PIs, postdocs and graduate students.
