The 11th Annual North American Genetic Analysis of ABC Transporters Workshop, Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - Thursday, September 25, 2014
Location: NCI-Frederick, Frederick, MD
Description: <p>This workshop features presentations from graduate students, post-docs., and senior investigators studying the role of ATP Cassette Binding Proteins in human disease. Phylogenetic studies, model systems, and bioinformatic techniques that shed light in this rapidly developing research area are presented. Because student presentations predominate, unpublished results often are first disclosed at these workshops.</p>
Fifth International Conference on Pediatric Mechanical Circulatory Support Systems and Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Perfusion , Thursday, May 28, 2009 - Saturday, May 30, 2009
Location: Hilton Anatole, Dallas, TX
Description: The main objective of this conference was to focus on the current problems associated with pediatric cardiac patients during and after acute or chronic cardiac support. At this conference, we brought together many distinguished physicians and scientists to define precisely the current problems and to suggest solutions with novel approaches.
Weinstein Cardiovascular Development Conference, Thursday, May 07, 2009 - Saturday, May 09, 2009
Location: San Francisco, CA
Description: The intent of the meeting was to advance the overall field of cardiovascular development and congenital heart disease through the sharing of information and the facilitation of collaborative investigations. An additional goal was to aid the career development of students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty members by providing a forum where they could present their work and interact with established investigators. Because of this emphasis on career development, the conference has strived to keep registration fees low, because higher fees may be prohibitive for students and junior investigators with limited funding. ORDR co-sponsorship in previous years has enabled this goal by allowing the organizers to provide a reduced registration fee for students and fellows.
