The Gordon Research Seminar on Craniofacial Morphogenesis and Tissue Regeneration is an enthusiastic meeting exclusively for graduate students, post-docs, and young career scientists to proudly present their work and exchange new cutting edge ideas. It gives an incredible opportunity for early professionals to have a taste of what to expect from the following Gordon Research Conference, as well as to create a friendly environment to encourage more networking with peer academics.
This meeting will aim to interconnect the knowledge of basic science in development and disease with regenerative strategies of the craniofacial complex, filling the gap between the fields. Knowledge exchange and networking will be facilitated by oral and poster presentations chosen from submitted abstracts, which will be focusing on craniofacial evolution and morphogenesis, discovery and regulation of stem cells, protein and gene networks, tissue engineering and mechanisms of disease. The scientific program will feature a final mentorship session with a few junior principal investigators of craniofacial biology and regeneration who will discuss their career paths and share their passion for science to inspire future leaders.
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 22, 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.
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.
