GUDMAP Jamboree 2021 - Celebrating 15 years of the GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project (August 23-24, 2021)

The GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project (GUDMAP) was established fifteen years ago to create a detailed molecular map of genitourinary tract development. In recognition of this milestone, this symposium will review GUDMAP accomplishments and discuss the future directions of the GUDMAP Consortium and its data resources.

We invite academic researchers and scientists in the biomedical community to join our celebration (via Zoom). This event features invited talks from external speakers; presentations from GUDMAP investigators showcasing their biomedical research and progress; relevant data, resources, breakout groups or discussions around key topics (e.g., bioinformatics, data quality), and tools available in the GUDMAP Hub for the broader communities at large; posters or lightning talks presentations from young investigators; and more.

The GUDMAP Jamboree is a celebration of 15 years of the GUDMAP consortium.

The workshop goals include:

  • Highlighting the unique research resources and cutting-edge science available via the GUDMAP knowledgebase;
  • Promoting interactions and fostering collaborations between basic scientists, clinician researchers, nontraditional renal and urological researchers, other NIH consortia, and other stakeholders;
  • Understanding how researchers use GUDMAP resources or would like to use GUDMAP resources;
  • Uncovering datasets, tools, and algorithms that could enhance the richness of the GUDMAP knowledgebase, and understanding the expectations of users for data quality;
  • Exploring opportunities that span datasets or organs, including the kidney, ureters, bladder, urethra, prostate, and external male genitalia;
  • And promoting the achievements of junior researchers and providing networking opportunities.
