3D Tissue Models
Salivary Glands & Exocrine Biology Gordon Research Conferences (GRC)
Hotel Galvez

Galveston, Texas

     *  Registration Deadline:
       16th January 2011

   This meeting will facilitate collaborations between groups with
   different strengths, but with intimately related interests. The
   program will highlight current research issues and state-of-the-art
   scientific approaches relevant for all investigators engaged in
   salivary gland and exocrine biology research. To these ends, the
   program will include researchers using a number of model systems to
   investigate the molecular mechanisms involved in glandular development
   and exocrine function. These include signal transduction, gene
   regulation, proliferation and apoptosis, protein and fluid secretion,
   and the control and regulation of secretion. The role these processes
   play in the initiation and progression of "exocrineopathies", such as
   Sjogrens syndrome, dry eye, and pancreatitis, will be included, as
   well as the immunology and genetics of Sjogrens syndrome. We also plan
   to include presentations on exocrine gland tumor biology and rare
   diseases of exocrine glands. Importantly, the therapeutic regeneration
   of exocrine tissue using gene therapy and stem/progenitor and iPS
   cells will be addressed. Additionally, the program will include
   researchers using a systems biology approach to investigate exocrine
   biology and glandular secretions, including advances in genomic,
   proteomic, and other “-omics”.

   A few abstracts will be selected for shorter oral presentation in the
   weeks preceding the conference to ensure that the oral program
   includes exciting new advances. To encourage the participation of
   young investigators we will award a number of travel fellowships for
   students and postdoctoral fellows based on their submitted abstracts.
   To be considered for a travel award, abstracts must be submitted by
   Jan 16, 2011.
