We are excited to help spread the word that applications to this year's Gordon Research Conference on the Physics & Chemistry of Microfluidics are currently being accepted! This GRC is a must-attend for anyone in the Microfluidics 2.0 field, as the focus of the conference is on "Challenges, Adcances, and New Technologies for Diagnostics." The co-chairs of the conference, Drs. James Landers and Paul Yager, have selected a wonderful line-up of speakers for talks in the following session areas:
- Fluidic control
- Paper microfluidics
- Microfluidic acoustics
- Centrifugally-driven microfluidics
- Commericalization of microfluidic technology
- Next-generation sequencing
This GRC will be held June 9-14, 2013 at the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort in Lucca (Barga), Italy. Applications are due by May 12, 2013, but applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, so early applications are encouraged!
Also, if you are a graduate student or post-doc, please also consider attending the corresponding Gordon Research Seminar, taking place directly prior to the GRC (June 8-9, 2013). The theme of this GRS is also very fitting for the MF20 community: "From Bench-to-Beside: From Diagnosis through Treatment." Applications are due by May 11, 2013, but again, early applications are encouraged! Please note that graduate students and post-docs can (and should) also apply to the GRC.
In case this exciting scientific program is not enticing enough, perhaps the beautiful venue can do the talking:

Hope to see you there!
