PC Assembly: Grover Conference

The biennial Grover Conference is the only international meeting in North America that repeatedly focuses on subjects relevant to lung vascular biology and medicine. Initiated in 1984 and named in honor of Robert Grover, the conference is held in a secluded, rural setting in the Rocky Mountains. Participation of young scientists is particularly encouraged. This has proven to be an excellent meeting that has led to fruitful collaborations between investigators young and old, often in different fields of specialization. The next Grover Conference will take place Sept. 6-10. Register by July 21 on the ATS website.
