The Cardiac Regulatory Mechanisms 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 2024 GRS is a two-day meeting designed for early-career scientists from all over the world to present their work in a welcoming and supportive environment of their peers. The GRS is organized by early-career scientists and is designed to promote scientific collaboration amongst a diverse group of scientists focusing on a variety of topics in cardiovascular physiology. Basic and clinical graduate students, post-baccalaureate and postdoctoral trainees, and new investigators are invited to present new, unpublished data generated in their cardiovascular research projects, with a special emphasis on how they ensure rigor and reproducibility in their studies.
The goal of the 2024 meeting is to provide an inclusive and stimulating setting for junior scientists to present their work, network with peers, and establish collaborations. This seminar will focus on several emerging concepts in cardiac physiology and disease. Topics will include using -omics and bioinformatics to address cardiovascular questions, crosstalk between the heart and extra-cardiac tissues, and understanding key molecular changes in cardiac pathologies.
New this year, the 2024 GRS will include a talk on rigor and reproducibility, with a short discussion that follows, where early-career scientists can get their questions answered regarding this topic and similar ethical concerns. We will also include a mentorship session, consisting of an informal panel discussion with scientists at various stages in their careers. The discussion will include topics such as tracking productivity and success as a trainee, transitioning from training to a career, translating basic science concepts into medical advances, grant writing, and manuscript preparation.
With such stimulating topics and discussions, we look forward to a great 2024 GRS!
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 17, 2024. 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.
