The Alcohol-Induced End Organ Diseases GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
Discussions will focus on current advancements in the field of alcohol-related tissue injury, novel models and techniques used in alcohol research, challenges trainees have encountered in their own work, and methods they have used to address those challenges.
This GRS attracts trainees studying different mechanisms of alcohol-induced tissue injury and treatment targets in various cells, organs, and systems. Participation in the trainee-led GRS will aid early-career scientists in putting their work into the “bigger picture” of alcohol-induced end-organ diseases and gain a deeper perspective on different approaches in alcohol research. The trainee-led format of the GRS will allow participants to share recent progress and unpublished data on their work. Importantly, the GRS fosters a close community between participants and will provide trainees with ample networking opportunities with fellow scientists.
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 18, 2022. 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.
