Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Enzymes, Coenzymes and Metabolic Pathways 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.

The 2017 GRS will highlight the latest advances, innovations and new discoveries in enzymology from the fundamentals of determining enzyme function to complex enzyme mechanisms and their roles in cancer and disease. This meeting will also emphasize career development by including a panel of senior and junior leaders from academia, industry, government and beyond, as well as providing multiple opportunities to network in a casual, stimulating environment.

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.
