Professor Wen Xie, MD, PhD  was an invited speaker at two Gordon Research Conferences. In early July, Xie spoke at a Gordon Conference on Drug Metabolism at the Holderness School in Holderness, New Hampshire. His presentation was titled “Estrogen Sulfotransferase in Mediating the Disease Effect on Lier Metabolism.”

In August, Xie attended another Gordon Conference concerned with Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Toxicity. His presentation, titled “The Endobiotic Functions of Xenobiotic Receptors, the Expected and Unexpected,” was given at the Proctor Academy in Andover, New Hampshire.  Xie was joined by other speakers from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Gordon Research Conferences are dedicated to groundbreaking research in chemical, biological, and physical sciences. Gordon Conferences champion debate and interaction, and are known for encouraging attendees to dialogue with presenters in order to promote constructive insights. Attending a Gordon Conference itself is an achievement, with only 200 attendees invited to each after being selected from an applicant pool. The careful selection of attendees is intended to encourage collaborative work with common goals.

Xie is the Interim Chair of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Joseph Koslow Endowed Chair at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy.
