Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Living with a genetic or rare disease can impact the daily lives of patients and families. These resources can help families navigate various aspects of living with a rare disease.
These resources provide more information about this condition or associated symptoms. The in-depth resources contain medical and scientific language that may be hard to understand. You may want to review these resources with a medical professional.
Gordon Research Conference on Multi-Drug Efflux Systems Shared Molecular Mechanisms but Diverging Roles in Physiology and Medicine
Sunday, March 17, 2013 -
Friday, March 22, 2013
Location: Four Points Sheraton/Holiday Inn Express, Ventura, CA
Description: The goal of the 2013 Multidrug Efflux Systems GRC is to bring together scientists from diverse fields to interact, learn from each other, identify new approaches and challenges, and make greater strides in overcoming the individual diseases that involve transporter efflux pumps. It is expected that this meeting will have a significant broad impact in education and training of future scientists working in crossdisciplinary areas.

2011 Multi-Drug Efflux Systems Gordon Research Conference
Sunday, June 12, 2011 -
Friday, June 17, 2011
Location: Les Diablerets Conference Center, Les Diablerets, Switzerland
Description: This meeting will focus on recent advances in unraveling molecular mechanisms of transport and multi-drug recognition based on biochemical, genetic and structural studies. Special emphasis will be made on new methods and techniques to study membrane proteins. Many other aspects such as the cellular mechanisms regulating activity of MDR transporters, the physiological functions of MDR transporters in various organisms and their pathophysiological functions in humans will be also covered by leading scientists and representatives of pharmaceutical companies from all over the world.
