The Gordon Research Seminar on Chemistry and Biology of Peptides is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a unique forum for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career scientists to present and exchange new ideas in the exciting area of peptide science.
The focus of this meeting is to highlight the importance peptides have gained in our society by showcasing chemical advances towards their synthesis and the wealth of applications possible, from therapeutics to biomaterials. The seminar will include both oral and poster presentations, with ample time for discussions, as well as a diverse career panel to introduce attendees to possible opportunities for their future.
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 November 5, 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.
