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 signaling, 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 remodeling.
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.
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 27, 2022. 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.
