We have missed you and are thrilled to begin operating a limited, in-person conference season this fall in California and New England. Applications are open for the 2021 conference season so be sure to secure your spot at the frontiers of science today.

 
GRC remains committed to our mission to advance the frontiers of science and provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, physical and engineering sciences, and their interfaces. Now more than ever, we look forward to continuing to carry out our mission.  
 
The health and safety of our attendees remain GRC’s top priorities, and we will:
•  continue to monitor all health and safety guidelines provided by the federal and state governments, 
•  continue to work closely with our venues to take all necessary precautions and welcome our attendees back safely, 
•  and offer GRC masks to all attendees.
 
Applications are also open for the 2022 conference season which is set to be our largest conference season yet! Registration for these conferences will open in September. 

Thank you for your continued support of GRC, and we look forward to seeing you in person soon.

The GRC Power Hour™

GRC has had a longstanding commitment to inclusion and addressing the challenges women and all underrepresented groups face in achieving equity in science. The Power Hour promotes conversations about the barriers to inclusivity within its 400 communities and has been incredibly popular with both men and women, reflecting growing conversations in the sciences about issues including unconscious bias, mentoring and sponsorship, strategies for addressing harassment and inappropriate behavior, and the culture change needed to support the professional growth of all scientists.

"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 remember my first GRC experience because it was where I really felt like I could present new and risky ideas with a warm reception."
-
"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, physical and engineering sciences and their interfaces.

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
