The Gordon Research Conference “Red Cells” is a biennial gathering of national and international researchers and clinicians studying all aspects of erythroid biology. This meeting plays a key role in the exchange of new ideas and advances the development of the field. The “Red Cells” conference provides a forum for the discussion of the current state of topics including the development of erythroid progenitors during development and in adults, regulation of erythroid gene expression, function of normal and diseased erythrocytes and the development of new strategies to treat anemia and other erythroid disorders. The inclusion of industry researchers along with government and academic researchers/clinicians provides an environment that fosters the development of new ideas and identifies areas for translation of research into the clinic. The small size of the meeting adds to the collegiality of the meeting and is a catalyst for new collaborations. The “Red Cells” Gordon Research Conference is committed to fostering the development of young scientists. A Gordon Research Seminar accompanies this conference. This trainee organized meeting provides opportunities for Graduate Students and Fellows to present their findings and network with one another. In addition, this seminar furthers the professional development of the next generation of investigators in the erythroid biology field. Its inclusion has been very positive, strongly promoting the active participation of young scientists/clinical fellows at the Red Cells Gordon Research Conference.
