The application deadline for this meeting was May 4, 2013. You may still submit an application. However, it will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
The High Throughput Chemistry & Chemical Biology Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the High Throughput Chemistry & Chemical Biology Gordon Research Conference
. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Please refer to the High Throughput Chemistry & Chemical Biology GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon Research Seminar on High Throughput Chemistry & Chemical Biology 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 focus of this meeting is on methodological and technological advances in the field of Chemistry and Chemical Biology that have led to systematic, de novo production of small molecules to probe biological processes with a therapeutic impact.
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 1, 2013. 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.
