The Gordon Research Seminar on Biology of Aging 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.
The focus of this meeting is to discuss the broader picture of the latest advances and technologies in the field of aging, highlighting some of the most relevant unanswered questions. The 2019 Biology of Aging GRS brings together researchers from academia and industry to showcase the best of both worlds, providing a venue where rising junior researchers can experience a world of future directions for both their own research and their professional trajectories. By participating in talks, poster presentations, and a mentorship panel, attendees will be able to present their own work and receive feedback from both peers and mentors from a plurality of backgrounds and disciplines.
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 April 13, 2019. 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.
