 We have missed you and are thrilled to see you in person in 2022! Applications are open for the 2022 conference season, so be sure to secure your spot at the frontiers of science today. 

GRC remains committed to our mission to advance the frontiers of science and provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, physical and engineering sciences, and their interfaces. Now more than ever, we look forward to continuing to carry out our mission. 

The health and safety of our attendees remain GRC’s top priorities, and we will:
•  require proof of COVID-19 vaccination and booster shot (for eligible individuals) from all registered attendees and guests*,

The Power Hour

GRC has had a longstanding commitment to inclusion and addressing the challenges women and all underrepresented groups face in achieving equity in science.  The Power Hour promotes conversations about the barriers to inclusivity within its 400 communities and has been incredibly popular with both men and women, reflecting growing conversations in the sciences about issues including unconscious bias, mentoring and sponsorship, strategies for addressing harassment and inappropriate behavior, and the culture change needed to support the professional growth of all scientists.

The GRC Community

You'll always remember your first GRC.

"GRCs are different from other scientific conferences because they are organized by members of the community, they emphasize new results and they are structured to provide enough time (free of distractions) to interact meaningfully."

- 2014 GRC Attendee

"GRCs are different from other scientific conferences because they stimulate discussion among researchers from industry, academe and government with a wide range of experience from novice to expert."

- Megan Corty, University of Massachusetts Medical School
"This is a test of a 4th testimonial"

The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological,chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.

Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are:

  • Created by scientists, for scientists
  • Forums to discuss pre-publication research at the forefront of
    your field
  • Informal communities of experts in the field
  • A great opportunity to network with your peers

Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are:

  • Organized by and for young investigators
  • A way to interact with leaders who may later serve as mentors
