This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule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.
Cell death is a fundamental component of development, as well as regular maintenance processes. In addition, cell death modalities are firmly established drivers of disease pathology, and potential therapeutic targets. This meeting will focus on the diverse ways that cell death impacts cell, tissue and organism homeostasis, and how this affects our understanding and treatment of disease.
The second Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Cell Death is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other junior scientists to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The GRS together with its associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC) aims to bring together established scientists, leaders in the Cell Death field, and junior scientists to share exciting discoveries and exchange ideas. All the oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts, and the meeting will feature a career mentorship panel discussion, which will include several experts on the field.
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 13, 2020. 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.
