This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Cell Biology of the Neuron 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.
Our goal for this GRS is to foster an atmosphere and discussion that advances our understanding of cellular function of the neuron. Our program will embrace research that spans all facets of Neuronal Cell Biology: from molecular and cellular signalling, development, plasticity, trafficking, as well as disease. This meeting will feature a keynote lecture delivered by Avital Rodal, a leader in the fields of endosomal trafficking and membrane remodelling.
Attendees will participate by giving an oral presentation, serving as a discussion leader, and/or presenting a poster. In addition, we are planning a Career Development panel to provide young investigators with a "Hindsight 20/20" perspective on their developing careers.
