Craniofacial Morphogenesis and Tissue Regeneration Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conference (GRC) and will be held from Feb 23 - 28, 2020 at Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. Conference Description: The ultimate aim of craniofacial research is to understand the causes underlying craniofacial malformations and to develop diagnostics and therapies for these disorders and for the repair of craniofacial tissues. Contemporary studies of the development of the vertebrate head and face take a multidisciplinary approach combining developmental biology with functional genomics, biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, and cellular biology. The study of craniofacial development utilizes a range of vertebrate species, including those that are not commonly used for laboratory studies. Collectively, these provide a range of experimental models for investigating the molecular and cellular mechanisms underpinning the morphogenesis of craniofacial structures and the associated organs in health and diseases, as well as offering insights into the evolutionary forces and the environmental factors driving the diversity of form and function of these structures. The scientific program will highlight how interdisciplinary research can push boundaries in our understanding of craniofacial research, with talks investigating the physics and mechanics of craniofacial biology. Such approaches help researchers address how craniofacial cell populations work together (integration) and how the surrounding environment impacts on the form. This will be accompanied by discussions on how these processes drive tissue diversity and the form shaping process, and how distinctive features of the vertebrate head evolved. There will be invited presentations by leading researchers on new findings in craniofacial morphogenesis and regeneration, with a specific focus on the role that mechanics plays in shaping development. The meeting will also feature sessions on cell signaling, clinical genetics, sense organs, development of animal models of craniofacial disorders and on the application of tissue engineering in regenerative repair. The program will bring together researchers of diverse expertise to foster stimulating discussions and productive collaborations across different fields in a collegiate atmosphere. Conference Program: The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. • Keynote Session: Forces in Craniofacial Biology • Signaling in Craniofacial Development • Tissue Interactions and Morphogenesis • Tissue Regeneration • Evolution of the Craniofacial Complex • Clinical Genetics • Sense Organs and Cranial Neural Crest • Cell and Tissue Mechanics • Craniofacial Disorders.
Mar 01 - 06, 2020 | Lucca, Tuscany
New Antibacterial Discovery and Development Gordon Research Conference (GRC) 2020 is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Mar 01 - 06, 2020 at Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. Conference Description: The field of antibacterial drug discovery and development is contracting dramatically whilst the antimicrobial resistance continues to increase. In addition to the lack of resource for R&D due to the antibiotic market failure, there are major technical challenges in the field range. It is harder than ever before to discover new targets, and discover new chemical entities that are suitable for clinical development. The path to overcoming these challenges will require a concerted effort between different disciplines and backgrounds in order to address the growing unmet medical need imparted by the spread of drug-resistant microbes. The 2020 Gordon Research Conference on New Antibacterial Discovery and Development will bring highly experienced leaders in antibacterial drug discovery and development together with young investigators and those new to the field of antibiotics research to help address these issues. Discussion leaders and speakers are chosen from academia, industry, and government and philanthropic agencies to represent the breadth of talent and leadership necessary to drive innovation around target discovery and validation, hit identification and chemical optimization, and clinical trial design and execution. Previous meetings have defined the problem of antibiotic resistance, the challenges in antibiotic discovery and development faced over the past two decades, and the need for new pathways for clinical development. Those meetings have successfully created a community of idea generation and collaboration in what is otherwise a highly competitive scientific arena. This meeting will build on those foundations by exploring i) traditional as well as non-traditional strategies for achieving successful therapies for patients with infections, ii) learning from recent clinical programs with new and established targets which may be translatable to the next generation of antibacterial drugs, and iii) building an understanding of the economic and political landscape desperately required to support antimicrobial R&D. Conference Program: The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. • Keynote Session: Novel Approaches to Address Future Medical Needs • Learning from Successes and Failures in Antibacterial Lead Optimization • Unraveling the Requirements for Drug Permeation and Target Engagement • New Approaches to Antibacterial Hits and Leads • Broad vs. Narrow Spectrum Case Studies • Combination Therapies and Resistance Breakers • Alternatives to Antibiotics • New Results from Clinical Studies • Models for Advancing Antibiotics.

Conference Description: The Spirochetes are a deeply-branching phylum of bacteria initially delineated by their serpentine shape and periplasmic flagella. Their unusual cellular ultrastructure, motility mechanism, metabolic pathways, and gene regulation has evoked the maxim spirochetes do it differently. Pathogenic spirochetes include the agents of Lyme disease, leptospirosis, syphilis, relapsing fever, periodontal disease, digital dermatitis, and intestinal spirochetosis that pose immense, and growing, global threats to human and animal health. Since 1994, the biennial Biology of Spirochetes Gordon Research Conference has served as the foremost forum for researchers who study this diverse and successful group of bacteria. The highly interactive format emphasizes cutting-edge, unpublished scientific research at the forefront of spirochetology followed by open, collegial discussions and has generated productive, often lifelong, collaborations between investigators representing a wide spectrum of backgrounds, interests, and experimental approaches. The conference also provides a welcoming atmosphere for trainees and early career scientists to introduce themselves and their research to the spirochete community and to interact with established investigators in the field. Critical to our mission of enhancing career development is the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on the weekend preceding the Gordon Research Conference, which provides a relaxed, yet stimulating, setting for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their work, discuss their findings, and build collaborations. The 2020 meetings will cover topics from fundamental science to translational research at the frontiers of spirochete biology.
