The eighth Salivary Gland and Exocrine Biology Gordon Research Conference is the preeminent multi-disciplinary conference in these fields. It will continue the highly successful conference series that has brought together investigators at the forefront of salivary, lacrimal, pancreas and exocrine gland research, including basic, translational, and clinical researchers, with promising young scientists and experts from associated fields. We aim to bring together a diverse group of leading scientists into a single forum to present and discuss their latest unpublished results. A major goal is to prioritize future research directions in all aspects of the biology and pathobiology of exocrine glands and their secretions, along with related diagnostic and therapeutic advances
