The Cell Biology of Metals 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.
This year, our focus is on metal utilization and trafficking in eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems. Specifically, we are interested in how organisms change their metal usage based on the environment, this includes in macroenvironments such as within various bodies of water, soil, air, and cellular microenvironments including those specific to disease states and infections. This year's GRS will feature a keynote talk as well as several sessions of short-talks selected from submitted abstracts and moderated by a discussion leader. In addition, there will be several poster sessions, and a mentoring session by experts in the field.
If you have any related questions, please contact the 2023 GRS chairs, Catherine Denning-Jannace and Debolina Hati.
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 April 23, 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.
