2015 Epithelial Differentiation and Keratinization Gordon Research Conference & Gordon Research Seminar, Saturday, July 11, 2015 - Friday, July 17, 2015
Location: Sunday River Resort, Bethel, Maine
Description: Specific Aim: Provide an outstanding scientific program reflecting the latest conceptual advances: Invited speakers include leading investigators in epithelial biology and early career scientists with innovative and exciting stories. The program covers areas of persistent interest such as stem cells, regeneration and aging, epithelial adhesion and polarity, epithelial cancers and rare diseases, and explores new topics including the epithelial-environmental interactions, novel regulatory mechanisms involving long noncoding RNAs and chromatin modifiers, exciting advances in live imaging, and genomics approaches to understanding development, carcinogenesis and evolution.
Rare Tumors Initiative Symposium Strategies to Develop Therapies for Rare Tumors: Small Numbers, but Big Opportunities , Wednesday, June 17, 2015
Location: NIH Natcher Conference Center, Bethesda, MD
Description: The goals of this symposium are to increase communication and build networks between researchers working in rare tumors across NIH, and to get input from patient groups, industry, and the FDA on how to overcome the biggest hurdles in the development of therapies for rare tumors. The Rare Tumors Initiative at NCI, CCR will use this information to prioritize goals for the future and will prepare a white paper summary to help guide researchers worldwide.
