The Gordon Research Seminar on Elastin, Elastic Fibers and Microfibrils is a dynamic research forum for graduate students, post-docs and early career scientists at the forefront of elastic fiber-related research to present their own cutting-edge findings and exchange ideas amongst their peers, as well as established faculty in the field. This meeting encourages young scientists from a broad range of backgrounds and interests to lead discussions on topics including the structure and assembly of elastin, elastic fibers and microfibrils, elastic tissue mechanics and mechanisms of development and aging, as well as matrix regulation of cell signaling. An important focus will also be novel approaches and analytical tools for investigating elastin and associated proteins in health and disease, and translational approaches for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This meeting provides an exciting opportunity for early career scientists to engage in a professional development session with their peers and a panel of established scientists focusing on mentorship and career development.
