The Gordon Research Seminar is a meeting run by junior investigators, for junior investigators. It brings together post-docs and graduate students in a stimulating yet relaxed environment to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas before the start of the associated Gordon Research Conference. Topics include: envelope biogenesis, maintenance and degradation; transport and secretion of proteins, small molecules and other polymers; cell division and morphogenesis; subcellular localization; and environmental and multicellular interactions. Participants are strongly encouraged to present posters at the GRC immediately following the GRS. The two most outstanding speakers of the GRS will be invited to present during the main GRC.
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 March 25, 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.
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.
