The GRC Power Hour
The GRC Power Hour is an informal gathering for all meeting participants.  It is designed to help address the challenges women face in science and supports the professional growth of women in our communities by providing an open forum for discussion and mentoring.

"I remember my first GRC experience because it was where I really felt like I could present new and risky ideas with a warm reception."
-
"GRCs are different from other scientific conferences because they stimulate discussion among researchers from industry, academe and government with a wide range of experience from novice to expert."
-
"I volunteered to chair a GRC because I was always impressed by the excellence of the GRC, and having an opportunity to shape one of them was a great honor and a fantastic challenge."
-

The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological,chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.

Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are:

  • Created by scientists, for scientists
  • Forums to discuss pre-publication research at the forefront of
    your field
  • Informal communities of experts in the field
  • A great opportunity to network with your peers

Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are:

  • Organized by and for young investigators
  • A way to interact with leaders who may later serve as mentors

Supporting GRC

The Gordon Research Conferences is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization devoted to scientific and educational purposes. Each conference chair is given a conference budget, largely generated from registration fees, to aid in the running of the conference.

Contributions from foundations, governments, and private and industrial organizations provide important supplemental funding to support the attendance of selected scientists and students important to the success of the meeting.

Please support your Gordon Research Conference community by making a tax-deductible contribution to a specific Gordon Research Conference or Gordon Research Seminar today.
