The Gordon Research Seminar on Carbohydrates 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.
Carbohydrates represent an important class of biomolecules that influence a wide range of biological functions. Implications of carbohydrates in diseases have garnered great attention in recent times; however, incomplete elucidations of structure-to-function limit the ability to develop potent therapeutics. In order to address this limitation, a central platform for discussions and development of novel approaches through a multi-disciplinary effort is needed. The 2019 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Carbohydrates is a forum dedicated exclusively to young scientists to establish network and career developments in the glycoscience community through oral presentations, a career panel, and poster presentations. The goal of the GRS on Carbohydrates is to integrate scientists from diverse backgrounds to drive innovation towards carbohydrate-based therapeutics.
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 22, 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.
