June 5-10, 2022
This year’s conference topics encompass regulatory roles of retinoids in embryonic development and postnatal life, including roles in visual processes, immunity, wound repair and barrier functions, regulation of metabolism, stem cell dormancy, regeneration, and aging. Preclinical and clinical studies focus on retinoid-based cancer therapeutics, chemotherapy, and cancer immunology, and on retinoids used in the treatment of infections and skin disorders. Other therapeutic applications of retinoids topics include retinoid treatments of metabolic and visual disorders, aging, and chronic disorders.
The conference brings together basic and clinical scientists that have an interest in retinoid research. It aims to stimulate timely scientiﬁc exchange and collaborations in fundamental research and clinical use of retinoids in disease prevention and treatment. The program is designed to foster creativity and innovation and encourages the participation of those who are new to retinoid research. It emphasizes the presentation of new and largely unpublished studies.
Special attention is paid to programs and activities that enhance the participation of and provide training opportunities for underrepresented minority scientists, junior scientists, trainees, and newcomers to the retinoid ﬁeld. Invited talks by young investigators are interspersed with talks by established investigators. In addition, short talks will be selected primarily from early-stage and junior investigators (assistant professors, postdoctoral fellows, or pre-doctoral students).
To maximize the number of junior investigators given exposure, three sessions include “Capsule Reports”: eight, ﬁve-minute oral poster presentations. Newcomers and early-stage researchers will take part in poster and abstract evaluation, award selection, and the planning of the next retinoid conference.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- Session 1: Retinoid Receptors and Retinoid Receptor-mediated Biology
- Session 2: Retinoid Metabolism, Homeostasis, and Enzymology
- Session 3: Retinoids and Disease I: Immune Disorders and Immunology
- Session 4: Molecular Therapeutics I: Retinoid Mechanisms and Novel Targets
- Session 5: Retinoids and Disease II: Metabolic Disorders and Carotenoid Signaling/Metabolism
- Session 6: Molecular Therapeutics II: Retinoids and Novel Pharmacological Applications
- Session 7: Development, Stem Cell, and Regenerative Biology
- Session 8: Retinoids and Disease III: Cancer and Related Pathologies
The conference includes keynote speakers and is divided in eight sessions. Each session provides opportunities for six to eight presentations including plenary talks, short talks, talks selected from abstracts, and oral “Capsule Report” presentations.
Special seminars have been developed to address the timely topics of career development; the promotion of equity, diversity, and inclusion; and work-life balance. “Meet the Expert” sessions are structured during breaks and/or lunch to allow trainees and junior faculty to meet experts in the ﬁeld and receive career and scientiﬁc advice.
