The Tenth International Catecholamine Symposium (XICS)

Co-funding Institute(s):

Welcome to The Tenth International Catecholamine Symposium (XICS) co-funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)  and the Office of Rare Diseases Research (ORDR)


Ailomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, CA, United States


The Tenth International Catecholamine Symposium (XICS) will emphasize integration of basic science with clinical pathophysiology, by a program centering on disease-oriented research about catecholamine systems. The goals of the XICS are to: disseminate the latest important basic scientific, disease-oriented, and patient-oriented medical advances about catecholamines; foster interactions among basic scientists, disease-oriented researchers, and clinical investigators, via common interests in catecholamine systems; emphasize integrative approaches for understanding the roles of catecholamines in cellular, organ, systemic, and organismic integrity; comprehensively update research on catecholamines in rare and common disorders of development in pediatrics, regulation in adults, and degeneration in the elderly; and foster synthesis of molecular genetics with integrative physiology and pathophysiology, based on evolving understanding of catecholamine systems.
