Conference Summary

This is the only international conference that focuses on Vitamin A. In a spirit of cross-disciplinary education, this meeting provides a "home base" for diverse scientists to review the latest concepts and information about retinoid biology and to assess new developments.

The conference brings together researchers who study retinoids to address the broad spectrum of retinoid actions and application in a comprehensive and integrative manner. This SRC benefits new investigators through mentoring opportunities and career development sessions and provides an excellent venue for established investigators less familiar with the field, allowing them to gain a better perspective on the increasingly complex biology of retinoids.
