The Gordon Research Seminar on Dendrites: Molecules, Structure and Function 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 overarching goal of our GRS is to foster an atmosphere that advances knowledge of how dendrites operate at a fundamental level, which will hopefully enable the development of novel therapeutics to treat disease. Our program will focus on research that spans a variety of perspectives and technical approaches: from molecular and cellular signalling, development, integration, contribution to single cell computation and circuits, as well as disease. Attendees are expected to participate either by giving an oral presentation, leading a discussion, and/or presenting a poster. In addition, we are planning a Career Development panel to provide young investigators with a prospective “Hindsight 20/20” perspective on their developing careers. Come receive critical feedback on your work, gain privileged knowledge, broaden your international network, develop collaborations, make new friends, and have fun!
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 December 30, 2018. 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.
