The Gordon Research Seminar on Bioorganic Chemistry 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 on innovations in the design of chemical tools and the implementation of these tools and technologies for visualizing and understanding complex biological processes. Chemistry is at the core of many new technologies in biology and medicine, and technological advances in these fields are fueling new approaches to chemical biology. This meeting will explore these emerging opportunities with the aim of catalyzing new cross-disciplinary partnerships. This GRS will include two poster sessions, two sessions of original research talks by graduate students and post-docs, a panel on mentorship and career development, and a keynote lecture. Additionally, there will be ample opportunity to have one-on-one conversations during dinner, breakfast, and poster sessions.
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 13, 2020. 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.
