The Gordon Research Seminar on Cornea and Ocular Surface Biology and Pathology 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.
The focus of this meeting will be to explore new mechanisms to study the ocular surface including tear film, ocular diseases, homeostasis, wound healing and development, in order to identify new molecular targets and translate them into therapy. This meeting will provide students and postdocs with the opportunity to meet three distinguished speakers: our keynote speaker Dr. Sarah Hamm-Alvarez, and Drs. Graziella Pellegrini and Stefan Schrader will lead our mentorship session. They will share their philosophy of science with us.
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 15, 2019. 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.
