Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health and Disease (GRS)
When: July 14 - 15, 2018
Where: Renaissance Tuscany II Ciocco
Via Giovanni Pascoli
Lucca (Barga), Italy
The Molecular Basis of Vascular Biology and Endothelial Cell Heterogeneity
Chairs: Annalisa Zecchin and Urs H. Langen
The Gordon Research Seminar on Endothelial Cell Phenotypes in Health and Disease is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
This seminar will focus on the role of intrinsic and extrinsic mediators of vascular biology in health and disease. The formation and maintenance of a functional vascular tree requires the coordination of a plethora of extracellular, intracellular, autocrine and paracrine signals to regulate endothelial cell specification and behaviour. Understanding the basis of the signalling inputs regulating endothelial cell specialization, heterogeneity and homeostasis may provide important insights on the onset and progression of disease. The aim of this meeting is to present recent advances in our understanding of these processes, while providing attendees the opportunity to discuss new research directions in the context of their own work and to foster the development of interactions and collaborations between researchers. The seminar will also include a mentorship session with senior scientists at different phases of their careers.
Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 16, 2018. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
