The Gordon Research Seminar on Barrier Function of Mammalian Skin is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
This seminar will be in line with the following Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Barrier Function of Mammalian Skin. The topics will cover the fundamentals of skin barrier and technological advances in this field including transdermal drug/vaccine delivery, skin disease and pathologies, trauma and wound management, and in silico modeling to investigate barrier properties.
The GRS provides an exciting opportunity for young researchers to present their work in front of their peers, and gain confidence for the following GRC. The seminar also holds a career development session with mentors from academia and industries; and is a great platform to start networking within the community, meet colleagues with similar interests and build awesome collaborations.
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 May 7, 2021. 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.
