This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule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 (GRS) on Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) in Development and Disease takes place biennially in conjunction with the Gordon Research Conference (GRC). It brings together graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to discuss the latest, cutting-edge data, exchange new ideas on future perspectives, and build a career network for the next generation of FGF researchers.
FGFs are important to development, physiologic maintenance, and repair and regeneration in a range of different tissues. Because of this, as well as the range of therapeutic options based on this essential signaling system, FGFs have attracted the attention of international researchers from different disciplines. The 2020 GRS focuses on the role of FGF signaling in development and disease, as well as translational clinical applications and the use of novel technologies in the FGF research. The program will include oral and poster presentations covering the latest science, a career mentorship panel, and networking opportunities. Our aim is to provide an interactive platform for early career researchers to present their ideas and shape the future of the FGF signaling field together.
