Symposium on Hormones, Development

NICHD is sponsoring a symposium on "Nuclear Hormone Receptors and Development," organized by Drs. Yun-Bo Shi and Jamshed Tata, to be held June 12-13 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Lister Hill Center Auditorium, Bldg. 38A.

Research in both the areas of hormonal signaling via their receptors and the diverse mechanisms underlying early and late processes of development is currently progressing rapidly and attracting a great deal of attention. The purpose of the symposium is to discuss recent advances in these two fields by focussing on the role of nuclear receptors for hormones and other signals in regulating postembryonic development. Topics to be covered include nuclear receptor structure and function, postembryonic development, programmed cell death, cellular differentiation and nuclear receptor-associated diseases.

Participants will include Donald D. Brown, Ronald Evans, David Hogness, Lorraine Gudas, Keith Yamamoto, Walter Wahli and Samuel Refetoff. All are welcome to attend. More information is available from Thuy Vo, 6-4045.
