GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by April 1, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Malaria is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

New tools and strategies are needed to accelerate progress toward malaria control and elimination. To successfully meet this challenge we need a clearer understanding of the complex interplay between the Plasmodium parasite, its mosquito vector and the vertebrate host it infects. The 2017 Malaria GRS will focus on the biology of Plasmodium infection at every stage of the parasite's life cycle. Organised in line with the Malaria GRC, that will host world leaders in the field of malaria, but also non-malaria scientists, this GRS will provide a unique informal forum for graduate students and postdocs to present and discuss their data side-by-side with senior scientists that are at the forefront of their research fields.

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 April 1, 2017. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
