NCATS Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • 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.

  • 5th International Conference on Epithelial Mesenchymal Transition, Monday, October 10, 2011 - Thursday, October 13, 2011
    Location: Singapore
    Description: The objectives of the meeting are to 1) Bring together investigators in the separate disciplines of cancer, pathology and development to discuss their observations on EMT and explore whether there is a consensus on important components of the process. 2) Provide a forum where students and junior investigators can interact with senior investigators and display their own work and ideas in the field. 3) Expand a viable co-operative cross disciplinary forum of EMT-related researchers internationally, particularly with outreach to Asia. This will continue to provide a worldwide network for exchange of expertise, reagents and techniques across disciplines. 4) Publish a timely meeting update on cellular, molecular and genetic aspects of EMT in an appropriate cross-disciplinary international journal.

  • Strategic Planning for Pulmonary Vascular Disease Research , Monday, March 08, 2010 - Tuesday, March 09, 2010
    Location: Bethesda, Maryland
    Description: Formulation of strategy for advancing clinical research in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) was a high priority of this conference. Plans are to make participants' recommendations available via publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Initiatives on future research were considered.
