The 2018 Gordon Research Seminar on Extracellular Vesicles 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.
Saturday will highlight robust characterization methods pushing the boundaries of EV research, allowing for insights into EV biogenesis, and for better understanding of EV heterogeneity leading toward well-defined biological activity and therapeutic applications. On Sunday the focus will be on utilization of EVs for cell-free tissue regeneration and in new strategies for cancer treatment. The seminar will conclude with a look into engineered EVs as the potential next-generation of bio-pharmaceuticals.
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 May 18, 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.
This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Extracellular Vesicles" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
