The Bioorganic Chemistry GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The Bioorganic Chemistry Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) precedes the related GRC, allowing graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and other early career scientists the unique opportunity to network and discuss emerging science with peers. The GRS allows meaningful interactions with keynote speakers and will offer additional professional development sessions to expose attendees to a variety of career opportunities in chemical biology.
The 2023 Bioorganic Gordon Research Seminar will focus on ever-evolving chemical tools and strategies for addressing diverse biological challenges. To highlight emerging scholarship, attendees are encouraged to present their unpublished data.
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 5, 2023. 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.
An outline of the program components for this GRS is displayed below. The seminar chair is currently developing their detailed program schedule, which will include the speakers they select from submitted abstracts, in addition to any additional components outlined below. The detailed program will be available by April 11, 2023. Please check back for updates.
