Location

Grand Summit Hotel at Sunday River
Newry, ME Site Information

Organizers

Chairs:
Alex M. Jaeger & Martin Gamerdinger

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 10, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

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 8, 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 Stress Proteins in Growth, Development and Disease 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.

This GRS will explore the breadth of influence that protein homeostasis imparts on biological processes. This will be accomplished through interactive discussions related to protein structure and function. These mechanistic, biochemical insights will lay the foundation for discussions on complex human conditions where protein homeostasis is disrupted including neurodegenerative disease, cancer, and aging. The discussions will be highlighted by a keynote address from a leader in the field of protein homeostasis, as well as opportunities to interact with other senior leaders in a collaborative atmosphere.

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 8, 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.
