The 2019 Gordon Research Seminar on Alcohol-Induced End Organ Diseases will provide a unique forum for a diverse range of trainees, including graduate students and post-docs, who are studying alcohol-related tissue injury.
The trainee-led format of the GRS will build on the open format of GRC, allowing trainees to share significant unpublished work and have ample opportunity for in-depth discussions with their peers, helping to build the future generation of alcohol researchers. This newly approved GRS will bring together trainees from diverse disciplines to discuss state-of-the-art developments in the mechanisms for alcohol-induced tissue injury, innovative translational/therapeutic developments, and new/novel models used in the field. In addition to facilitating new and exciting research developments for the future, attendees of the GRS will find a sense of community prior to the start of the GRC that will foster connections between trainees.
The seminar 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 seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by December 23, 2018. 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 Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
