The Gordon Research Seminar on Cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience to present and exchange novel data to the field.
This meeting will be a journey from the underpinning basic science of PDEs through to the mapping of PDE pathways and investigations into the resulting functional impacts. Furthermore, it will explore recent progress made in identification and development of both new and established therapeutic targets modulating cyclic nucleotide signalling. The key focus of this seminar will be on highlighting newly discovered fundamental insights that will increase our knowledge of the role of PDEs.
Unique to the GRS is that the meeting will also feature a mentorship session which provides an opportunity for informal discussions on career aspects and development with both academic and industry experts.
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 March 27, 2020. 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.
