This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Autophagy in Stress, Development and 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.
This 2020 GRS will emphasize on regulatory mechanisms of canonical and non-canonical autophagic activity regulation in physiological and pathological states. We anticipate stimulating exchange of notions and findings regarding the following subjects: basic knowledge of autophagy, mechanistic insights into basal and selective autophagy regulation, and pathogenic mechanisms associated to autophagy dysfunction. To nurture young investigator's professional development, we will host a mentorship session, where we will be discussing different career paths inside and outside academia with a broad panel of experts.
