Conference Description

The GRC on Epithelial Differentiation and Keratinization started in 1979, as a pioneering effort of dermatologists and cell biologists with a keen interest in research on skin, who saw the unique advantages of keratinocytes to probe the basis of epithelial tissue homeostasis. Further, it offered the opportunity to study growth/differentiation control, as well as the translation of basic studies to human disease. Over the years the conference has evolved very significantly, with an increased focus on molecular, cellular and developmental biology and has become the main international meeting for presentation and discussions of cutting-edge basic research on epithelial biology on a broad range of topics. The conference is held once every two years and attracts intense interest and is always heavily oversubscribed.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Epithelial Differentiation and Keratinization" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
