The Gordon Research Seminar on Biomineralization 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. The unraveling of biomineralization mechanisms, pathways and functions requires understanding in many fields of study including: biology, chemistry, materials science, geology, medicine and physics. Biomineralization research, therefore, relies heavily on multidisciplinary techniques and research collaborations. This GRS on Biomineralization aspires to generate a new perspective on the field by bringing together researchers from different disciplines and with a wide variety of skills. The topics to be addressed and discussed include: in vivo, in vitro, and in silico mineralization processes, integrative studies combining these methods, structure-function relations, bio-mimetic and bio-inspired studies, and cutting edge technologies for the study of biomineralization in natural, pathological and artificial conditions.
