Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health & Disease (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Basic and Translational Aspects of Endothelial Cell Biology


July 5-6, 2014


PGA Catalunya Business and Convention Centre
Girona, Spain


John C. Chappell

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health & Disease 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 focus of this meeting is the biology of vascular and lymphatic endothelial cells during normal and pathological conditions. In addition to angiogenesis, inflammation, and permeability, the Seminar will feature a wide-range of topics including signaling, gas/lipid regulation, stem cells, and translational applications in the vasculature.
