The Gordon Research Seminar on Bones and Teeth 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.
In the last few years, it has become increasingly clear that the local environments and metabolic pathways play a crucial role in skeletal biology. Better understanding of the nutritional requirements during bone physiology and pathology may therefore be fundamental for driving the development of new therapies. At the 2022 Bones and Teeth GRS, we intend to focus on the importance of environmental factors and both cellular and systemic metabolism during skeletal development and homeostasis and its potential for therapy development: From Bench-to-Bedside: Understanding the Skeleton for Developing Therapies. We hope to provide an innovative forum for early career scientists to discuss their research and establish a productive network.
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 October 15, 2021. 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.
