Conference Description

The Red Cells Gordon Research Conference is an interactive meeting that fosters the exchange of novel, unpublished data on all aspects of erythrocyte biology. Topics include developmental erythropoiesis, epigenetics and gene regulation, membrane dynamics, physiology, iron and heme homeostasis, inherited and acquired erythrocyte disorders, including infectious diseases of the red blood cell, emerging therapeutics for red cell disorders, and other aspects of erythropoiesis. The meeting, which includes attendees from academia, industry and government, has served the red cell community well and contributed substantially to its development. Meeting content mirrors the interests and intensity of its members and has given exposure to both nascent scientific pursuits and scientists. Indeed, the small size and collegiality of the meeting has spurred many collaborative efforts. A Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) for trainees accompanies the main meeting, providing opportunities in various aspects of career development to support pipeline of new biomedical investigators in the field of erythrocyte biology.
