This conference has been rescheduled to 2021
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference from the 2020 schedule and reschedule it to 2021. The 2021 conference will take place April 17-18, 2021 at Ventura Beach Marriott, Ventura, CA. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Antibody Biology and Engineering is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present, exchange ideas, and develop collaborative networks in both academia and industry. It further provides opportunities for ECRs to meet, discuss ideas with, and receive career advice from a small group of prominent, field-leading scientists in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
The theme of the 2020 Antibody Biology and Engineering GRS is on state-of-the-art or emerging technologies and techniques which are being utilized to further antibody biology knowledge and develop novel antibody therapeutics for human and veterinary diseases. The seminar will combine many aspects of antibody research, including basic antibody biology, structure, function and diversity, with a focus on methodology and techniques with a view to generate cross-disciplinary ideas and foster potential early career researcher collaboration.
