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 March 17, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
The Gordon Research Seminar on Cancer Nanotechnology, held for the first time in 2017, will bring together graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
Cancer nanotechnology is a complex
discipline that is fueled by the latest advances in basic chemistry and
biology. Translating fundamental science and innovative engineering solutions into new clinical options requires a coordinated effort of diverse group of of researchers. This unique forum will feature outstanding research by early career scientists across the continuum of cancer research.
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 17, 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.
