The Gordon Research Seminar on Bioorganic Chemistry will enable open conversations between graduate students, post-docs, and other early career scientists working at the interface of chemistry and biology. The GRS will provide a unique networking opportunity to discuss scientific progress, new ideas, and form a community with peers ahead of the affiliated GRC.
The 2022 Bioorganic Gordon Research Seminar will focus on innovations in the design of chemical tools and the implementation of these tools and technologies for visualizing and understanding complex biological processes. This GRS will include two poster sessions, two sessions of original research talks by graduate students and post-docs, panel(s) 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 11, 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.
