The Nucleic Acids GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.
The Nucleic Acids Gordon Research Conference (NAGRC) is the premier meeting for exchange of new ideas about the structure and mechanistic behavior of nucleic acids and their cellular processing factors, and the potential applications of innovative developments in RNA and DNA science. Historically, the meeting has provided a powerful forum for synthesizing cutting edge information that leads to ground-breaking discoveries and world-changing technologies. An important feature of the meeting is the inclusion of late-breaking findings and the active participation of early career scientists who are at the forefront of nucleic acid science. Because outstanding DNA and RNA research is conducted by investigators worldwide, the meeting strives to maintain an internationally broad range of participants, representing researchers at all career stages and backgrounds. Investigators at many different types of institutions – spanning universities, federal research facilities, and private sector companies – are encouraged to attend and actively participate in the NAGRC. The meeting program includes ample time for informal discussion and features promoted talks from an outstanding collection of abstracts submitted prior to each meeting. The NAGRC is held immediately after the affiliated Nucleic Acids Gordon Research Symposium, a trainee-focused meeting that is organized and attended by students and postdocs who attend the subsequent Gordon Conference and that affords extra opportunities to discuss results and collaborations with peers. Collectively, the NARGC represents a powerful opportunity for nucleating innovative research across multiple disciplines in the field of nucleic acid biology and translation.
The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include 9 sessions and the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
