    Location: Ailomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, CA
    Description: The Tenth International Catecholamine Symposium (XICS) will emphasize integration of basic science with clinical pathophysiology, by a program centering on disease-oriented research about catecholamine systems. The goals of the XICS are to: disseminate the latest important basic scientific, disease-oriented, and patient-oriented medical advances about catecholamines; foster interactions among basic scientists, disease-oriented researchers, and clinical investigators, via common interests in catecholamine systems; emphasize integrative approaches for understanding the roles of catecholamines in cellular, organ, systemic, and organismic integrity; comprehensively update research on catecholamines in rare and common disorders of development in pediatrics, regulation in adults, and degeneration in the elderly; and foster synthesis of molecular genetics with integrative physiology and pathophysiology, based on evolving understanding of catecholamine systems.
