This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule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.
Cell death and inflammation are two intimately connected biological processes. Emerging evidence demonstrates that different types of cell death greatly influence the outcome of infection, tumor surveillance, immunological and neurological disorders. At this conference, we will examine the molecular mechanisms that regulate various cell death processes and how they impact on tissue homeostasis and inflammatory responses in both healthy and disease settings. The GRC and the accompanying GRS will bring together world-leading experts, rising junior scientists, postdoctoral and graduate trainees to share and discuss the latest groundbreaking discoveries on these topics. In addition to the plenary session talks, the poster sessions will provide another platform for exchange of ideas. The Power Hour will provide an informal forum to address career development issues that are relevant to the success of scientists at all levels. We seek to create a collegial and intimate atmosphere to foster productive brainstorming and to promote collaboration.
