The Gordon Research Seminar on Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Toxicity 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.
Keynote speakers will discuss cutting-edge technologies that underpin predictive toxicology, which will fit with the theme for the 2021 GRS "Predictive toxicology: Linking mechanistic toxicology to functional endpoints." At least 5 selected presentations will be chosen from submitted abstracts and will feature the innovative and novel approaches in cellular and molecular toxicology mechanisms. The meeting will also include a career development session featuring editors from prominent journals and will focus on effective publication strategies and navigating the publication process in the age of pre-prints.
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 May 14, 2021. 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.
