The 2016 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) "Microbial Toxins and Pathogenicity" and its companion Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) are designed to showcase exciting, innovative basic and applied research in the infectious disease fields while promoting intensive discussion and networking between new and veteran researchers from academia, government, medicine and biotech. This biennial international conference continues to be regarded by the microbial pathogenesis community as our premier venue for intellectual exchange.
