About GRC

GRC is a non-profit organization dedicated to building communities that advance the frontiers of science.  Our conferences bring a global network of scientists together at remote venues to discuss the latest pre-publication research in their field.  GRC's unique format puts an emphasis on discussion and provides conferees with the opportunity to network informally during free afternoon times.

A lot has happened since Gordon Research Conferences was founded in 1931.  One thing that hasn't changed - our commitment to build enduring scientific communities that advance the frontiers of  biology, physics, engineering, chemistry and related sciences.

GRC organizes over 300 conferences per year, each highlighting the latest, cutting-edge research in fields ranging from physics to neurobiology, material science and engineering, to medicine.

We are uniquely known for the discussions that take place after each scientific talk, where conference attendees debate the ideas presented to foster a dynamic scientific exchange. 

Discoveries such as the triple helix structure of DNA were first introduced and debated at a GRC!  Each conference is limited to 200 attendees; scientists must apply to the  conference and be selected by the conference Chair to attend  the meeting.  All conferees are active participants in their community and contribute to moving the frontiers of the field forward.
