The 2019 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Alcohol-Induced End Organ Diseases "Inflammation and Cell Death: Mechanisms of Tissue Injury by Alcohol" will provide a unique forum to bring together a diverse range of young and established scientists who are studying alcohol-related organ damage. This newly approved Gordon Research Conference exclusively addresses alcohol-induced end organ disorders and will cover a broad range of studies at the molecular, cellular, systems and organismal level, with particular emphasis on multidisciplinary work and innovative approaches.
This GRC conference will 1) provide an international forum that promotes open discussion of cutting edge research at the forefront of alcohol-induced tissue injury, 2) foster the development of the next generation of investigators to study alcohol-induced organ damage, 3) promote interaction between young and senior investigators, 4) facilitate the exchange of ideas that will shape the future directions of the alcohol and tissue injury community and 5) introduce breakthrough techniques that facilitate the understanding of mechanisms driving alcohol-induced tissue injury. This GRC conference will significantly advance current understanding of the underlying mechanisms of end organ injury and stimulate development of effective therapeutic strategies for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of alcohol-related disorders. Talks will address questions centered on the basic mechanisms that contribute to alcohol-induced organ damage across the entire lifespan and will include wide ranging experimental systems from microbiome to humans.
The format will provide ample time for formal and informal discussions and emphasize the presentation of unpublished data, thus ensuring that the newest and most exciting developments in the field are discussed. Poster presentations will take place on each day of the meeting, allowing for widespread participation of conference attendees at all career stages. Speakers will also be selected from submitted abstracts for "late-breaking topic" talks by young investigators. Participation by young investigators will be strongly encouraged.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Alcohol-Induced End Organ Diseases (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The topics, speakers, and discussion leaders for the conference sessions are displayed below. 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 November 24, 2018. Please check back for updates.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
