The Enzymes, Coenzymes and Metabolic Pathways 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.
This GRS will feature oral and poster presentations in broad topic areas including biochemistry, macromolecular structure, chemical biology, and metabolism. Interdisciplinary studies, methodology, and applications of enzyme research in health, industry, and the environment are encouraged. In addition to the scientific program, the GRS will feature a discussion panel with representatives from academia, industry, and policy to discuss career planning, mentoring, and other challenges of the field. The GRS provides its attendees with an informal environment for community-building and fosters long-lasting professional connections. This first day helps set the tone and empower the attendees for success during the associated Gordon Research Conference, which our GRS attendees are strongly encouraged to attend.
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 9, 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.
