The Gordon Research Seminar on Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering 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 showcase novel approaches for engineering dynamic biomaterials for tissue engineering applications, including but not limited to disease modeling, implants for tissue regeneration, and microenvironments for controlling cellular fate. Additionally, there will be a Science Careers panel at the end of the meeting featuring speakers in Science Communication, Industry Start-Ups, and Science Editing, who will describe their transition from their academic (PhD or Post-Doc) positions into to their current role and provide tips for navigating careers outside of academia.
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 27, 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.
