2013 Lysosomal Disease Gordon Research Conference and Gordon Research Seminar

Saturday, April 13, 2013 - Friday, April 19, 2013
Lucca (Barga), Italy

Conference goals: To support participation by junior investigators, including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and new investigators who do not yet have individual and/or independent sources of funding to support their participation in such conferences. The goal is to have at least 40% of the participants at this meeting in this category and NIH funding will help ensure this level of participation. Indeed, at the 2011 inaugural meetings, fully one-third of the participants were graduate students/postdoctoral fellows/junior faculty. The selection of the meeting as host to a GRS will further enhance such participation by the next generation of leaders in the lysosomal disease research community. To further stimulate applications by investigators-in-training, a number of short talks will be chosen prior to the meeting based on abstract submissions, and moreover, a poster session, comprising nine short talks, will be chosen at the meeting on the basis of the posters which generate the most interest during the afternoon poster sessions.
