This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule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 is a fundamental component of development, as well as regular maintenance processes. In addition, cell death modalities are firmly established drivers of disease pathology, and potential therapeutic targets. This meeting will focus on the diverse ways that cell death impacts cell, tissue and organism homeostasis, and how this affects our understanding and treatment of disease.
The second Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Cell Death is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other junior scientists to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The GRS together with its associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC) aims to bring together established scientists, leaders in the Cell Death field, and junior scientists to share exciting discoveries and exchange ideas. All the oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts, and the meeting will feature a career mentorship panel discussion, which will include several experts on the field.
