The Gordon Research Seminar on Human Genetic Variation and Disease is a forum for students, postdoctoral fellows and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present cutting-edge research at the intersection of genomics, molecular biology, computational biology, and medicine.
The first ever GRS on Human Genetic Variation and Disease will focus on emerging ideas on the collection, generation, interpretation and applicability of large-scale genetic data sets in the context of human disease and medicine. Particularly, the meeting will emphasize the exciting new questions and resources that the next generation of scientists, engineers and analysts has inherited in this rapidly changing and increasingly interdisciplinary area of research. The GRS will provide junior scientists a venue to discuss research, and exchange ideas with peers and established scientists from a variety of disciplines. The congenial atmosphere of the GRS will also provide ample opportunities for participants to interact and build collaborations with scientists at these different levels.
We welcome applications from those familiar with the topic, as well as those who consider this a future area of interest. Early graduate students and junior scientists with limited backgrounds in multidisciplinary research are also encouraged to apply. We anticipate that the talks, poster sessions and discussion sessions at the GRS will foster a diverse community of young researchers that may, in the long term, be able to drive progress in this area.
This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Human Genetic Variation and Disease" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). 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.
