Smithfield, Rhode Island
Drug Resistance Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conference (GRC) and will be held during Jul 22 - 27, 2018 at Bryant University, Smithfield, Rhode Island, United States Of America. Meeting Description : The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Drug Resistance will build on the success of the three prior meetings to focus on assembling a multi-disciplinary group of basic and clinical scientists to understand mechanisms of drug resistance and how to identify and to overcome them using novel strategies. Drug resistance is a major challenge for the effectiveness of therapies in cancer and infectious diseases and for agricultural products including herbicides and pesticides. Drug resistance negatively impacts the health of millions in both developed and developing nations and has a massive financial impact on society. Despite the common issues facing these fields there are no forums that encourage cross-disciplinary interaction on this important problem. This forum will serve a unique and critical role of bringing together experts from different disciplines to create a community which will share expertise around drug resistance and work together on effective long term solutions. The community will explore areas including identifying resistance mechanisms, computational modeling of resistance from cells to humans, the use of diagnostics to identify and monitor resistance and the development of novel treatments. Beyond science, the community will become a valuable expert resource for policy makers to develop and guide implementation of effective long term strategies. The meeting will assemble a broad group from a diverse area of disciplines including established experts, young investigators and students with wide geographic and cultural perspective to build a long term community. This will include representation from academic, biotech/pharma and government. The meeting will encourage cutting edge-research presentations coupled with significant discussions and will also provide an opportunity for students to highlight research through poster presentations with the opportunity of a select group of students to present short oral presentations. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Neurobiology of Cognition: Neural Circuits Supporting Cognitive Function is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Jul 22 - 27, 2018 at jordan hotel sunday river, Newry, Maine, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Psychologists. Meeting Description : No known object is as complex as the human brain. It is now clearer than ever before that if scientists are to comprehend its operational principles, particularly those underlying the more abstract aspects of cognition, they must apply a multidisciplinary approach. The sessions within the 2018 Gordon Conference for the Neurobiology of Cognition span areas of cognitive neuroscience most relevant for understanding how circuits in the brain give rise to important elements of how we think, feel, act, decide, plan, and learn. The conference casts a wide net and is designed to spark new avenues for discussion among participants whose paths might not normally cross. Individual sessions draw upon a mix of behavioral, electrophysiological, imaging, and computational approaches, with a focus on paradigms and results that have afforded significant traction in the last years. Much attention is given to the recent explosion in data acquisition methods, and the capacity to analyze enormous datasets using increasingly sophisticated computational approaches. A persistent question in the background is how the elaborate architecture of the brain, unfolded miraculously during developmental, and governed by fundamental electrical, molecular, and mathematical principles, supports our subjective experience and directs our external behavior. The confluence of perspectives at this meeting, with diverse scientists called together to consider the most important topics in cognitive neuroscience, promises to cast new light on some of the most challenging and fascinating questions about how the brain works. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
