ORDR Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • 2016 Rare Disease Day at NIH, Monday, February 29, 2016
    Location: Building 10, Masur Auditorium, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD
    Description: The 2016 Rare Disease Day at NIH will take place on February 29. The event, sponsored by NCATS and the NIH Clinical Center, aims to raise awareness about rare diseases, the patients they affect and the research collaborations that are addressing rare disease challenges. The day will feature tours, posters and exhibits, and presentations.

  • Gordon Research Conference (GRC): Cilia, Mucus and Mucociliary Interactions, Sunday, February 08, 2015 - Friday, February 13, 2015
    Location: Hotel Galvez, Galveston, TX
    Description: The aims of the meeting are three fold: (1) To disseminate, discuss and integrate cutting-edge data related to progress in cilia, mucus and mucociliary interactions in a forum of world experts and young scientists. Each area will embrace advances in fundamental cell and molecular biology, development, novel imaging techniques, new animal models, and genetic discovery. Attendees will be able to use this information to improve their own understanding to advance their own work, teaching and to be stimulated for new discoveries in these areas. (2) To provide a forum that will link fundamental scientific knowledge related to cilia, mucus, and mucociliary interactions to human disease and avenues for diagnosis and therapies. Thereby, drive new collaborations, technologies and interactions among basic, translational, and clinical researchers related to gene function in diseases of cilia, mucins, mucosal immunity, disease diagnosis and treatment. (3) To promote involvement and advancement of trainees, women and under-represented groups in the study of cilia, mucus and mucociliary interactions. To assure a strong and equitable representation of women, minorities, young investigators (junior faculty, pre-doctoral, post-doctoral trainees) and those with disabilities through sound proactive planning and organization, we will invite and feature young investigators and trainees. The meeting format is designed to enhance the interaction of trainees and senior investigators.

  • 2013 Cilia, Mucus and Mucociliary Interactions Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, April 07, 2013 - Friday, April 12, 2013
    Location: Lucca, Italy
    Description: The goals of this conference are to bring together multidisciplinary experts in ciliary motility, mucus, mucociliary interactions and other cilia/fluid systems to discuss the latest results in these fields and to investigate new ways of approaching these dynamic interactive systems to further understanding of their properties and impact in human health and disease.

  • 2011 Cilia, Mucus & Mucociliary Interactions Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, February 13, 2011 - Friday, February 18, 2011
    Location: Ventura, CA
    Description: By tradition, the work presented at a Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is expected to be at the frontiers of science and unpublished to ensure presentation of the most recent and novel data. This format allows presentation of the most recent “hottest” findings. No publication is permitted from these proceedings as per GRC guidelines.
