The Collagen GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The focus of the 2023 Collagen GRS is to highlight interdisciplinary topics in collagen research related, but not limited to, the broad range of physiological processes collagens are involved in and how this knowledge can aid in our understanding of collagen molecular properties, and the development of novel treatments and therapies. The GRS will feature a keynote session, mentorship panel, talks given by peers, and poster sessions selected from submitted abstracts. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS via an oral or poster presentation, therefore all applications require an abstract.
The GRS brings together early career researchers involved in diverse areas of collagen research and provides a supportive and stimulating environment to share and discuss emerging research on collagen proteins. The friendly atmosphere will allow you to meet and connect with peers, discuss your work with leading scientists, and provide opportunities to develop your network and establish novel collaborations to propel future research.
All attendees of the 2023 Collagen GRS are encouraged to attend the subsequent 2023 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Collagen.
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 April 2, 2023. 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.
