The Gordon Research Seminar on the Biology of Aging 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 GRS is a unique colloquium for researchers at the level of graduate students and post-docs. The enriched environment will foster future collaborations and provide scientific insights from across biological models, methods, and approaches in order to shape scientific aptitude among young scientific minds.
The meeting aims to highlight major scientific developments at the interface of aging with metabolism, epigenetics and stem cell biology. The GRS will also hold an informal "career development" session for a detailed insight into career prospects in academics versus industry that shall provide young researchers with valuable career advice from senior experts in their respective fields. There are various travel fellowships available for students and postdoctoral fellows from around the world.
