The GRC will be held at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH on June 7-12, 2020, and will be preceded by the Meiosis Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) at the same location (June 6-7, 2020). The GRC will gather approximately 175 participants, including 53 speakers, to present and discuss cutting-edge, mostly unpublished research addressing critical topics in meiosis. The program comprises 9 plenary sessions that broadly address current issues in the initiation and progression of meiotic recombination, meiotic progression and cell cycle checkpoints, regulation of meiotic gene expression, chromosome pairing and synapsis, chromosome dynamics, and chromosome segregation. Four poster sessions, open to all participants throughout the conference, will provide a basis for extended and in-depth critical discussions. An open forum "Power Hour" will be convened with the aims of addressing the challenges faced by women in science and supporting the professional growth of women in our communities.
