Meeting Description


The 2017 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Polyamines is an exclusive meeting for graduate students, post-doctoral scholars and other early stage researchers with similar education and experiences. Here scientists exchange new data and cutting edge ideas, as well as foster scientific collaborations. During the GRS, scientists are encouraged to interact with invited renowned group leaders in the field prior to the Polyamines GRC. The 2017 GRS program will feature groundbreaking science on the role and regulation of polyamines, and their therapeutic application as either targets or agents.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by March 24, 2017.
