    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.

  • Advancing Symptom Clusters Research on Rare Cancers, Wednesday, June 17, 2015
    Location: NIH Neuroscience Building, Bethesda, MD
    Description: <p>It is intended that the in-depth, interdisciplinary dialogue of this expert working group will formulate an emerging consensus on a working definition of symptom clusters and, specific gaps and opportunities that provide a foundation for a transformative strategic blueprint to guide future symptom cluster research in rare cancers. In addition, it is anticipated that workshop proceedings will inform a funding opportunity announcement.</p>

  • 2013 Salivary Glands and Exocrine Biology Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, February 03, 2013 - Friday, February 08, 2013
    Location: Hotel Galvez, Galveston, TX
    Description: The overall goal of this conference is to expedite progress in research in the area of salivary and exocrine tissue biology and to use research findings for the development of new therapies for salivary and other exocrine tissues dysfunctions. A secondary goal is to facilitate collaborations among salivary researchers and investigators in complementary basic, translational and clinical fields.

  • Overcoming Barriers to International Clinical Trials for Rare Cancers , Friday, December 10, 2010
    Location: Bethesda, Maryland
    Description: The goals of this conference were to introduce key institutional players to the topic of international clinical trials in rare cancers and to establish an ongoing dialogue. Participants left the meeting with a set of specific priorities that need to be enacted to promote these trials. The meeting promoted consensus on the way that resources are prioritized to address rare cancers. Participants were asked to convey the content of the meeting to their constituencies and to follow up with pilot concepts.
