Cell Death Gordon Conference

Wed Mar 22 01:25:13 EST 1995

First Gordon Conference on Cell Death
Colby-Sawyer North, Lebanon NH   July 2-7, 1995

The first Gordon Conference on Cell Death will take place
in the pleasant New England town of Lebanon, New Hampshire
over the period including the Fourth of July. The
conference will have a general theme on intercellular
signaling and will be distinguished by drawing together
major theorists from the fields of neurology and
immunology.  The meeting is chaired by Richard Lockshin.
The organizing committee consists of Zahra Zakeri, Martin
Tenniswood, Barbara Osborne and Andrew Wyllie.  Meeting
structure typically includes sessions with three or four
invited speakers as well as contributed poster sessions.
Meeting attendance is restricted to 120.  Session titles
and chairs of sessions are listed below.  Request
