The In Vivo Magnetic Resonance 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.
As the world goes through massive disruptions and innovations, in-vivo Magnetic Resonance (MR) must demonstrate adaptability to remain a staple of imaging. The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is leading the charge in creating networking opportunities for the budding careers of the early MR scientists who represent the future of this field. The GRS complements the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) by the same name with the addition goal of allowing trainees - junior scientists, graduate students and post docs - to build up their networks with the established leaders in the in vivo MR field for two days before the main conference.
Trainees from all over the world and from diverse fields in the MR community are invited to participate in the GRS where they will be able to hone their skills and confidence for two engaging days prior to the GRC. A broad group of topics are welcome, including, but not limited to, sustainability of MR, MR in developing nations/rural areas, and new complementary techniques, such as 3D printed biomaterials, AI, and brain stimulation.
There will be opportunities for scientific talks and posters in an easygoing and open environment where you can get feedback from your peers. Trainees will be able to strengthen their abilities with fellow trainees from all over the world and be welcomed to our close-knit community of scientists in MR. Networks built through the GRS and GRC will be important for MR scientists of all career stages to keep up with, and possibly lead, the rapid change throughout the world.
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 7, 2024. 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.
