Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 8, 2013. 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 6, 2013. Please refer to the Application Instructions section below for more details (if available).
The Myogenesis Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the Myogenesis 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 Myogenesis GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Myogenesis is an opportunity for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience present and exchange new data and ideas in an open and welcoming environment.
This interdisciplinary seminar will cover on a wide range of topics in the field of myogenesis, including muscle specification, evolutionary diversity and stem cell regulation as well as new advances in analysis and treatment of muscle diseases, immune modulation and aging processes.
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 6, 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.
