The Lung Development, Injury and Repair 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.
Respiratory diseases represent a leading cause of death and disability, with a large burden attributed to several developmental disorders, COPD, Asthma, Interstitial Lung Diseases, and pathogens including viral infection. The 2023 Lung GRS will highlight cutting edge research on processes and cell types that participate in the development of respiratory disease, and feature translation of fundamental findings toward therapeutic strategies. In addition to scientific sessions, the GRS will provide a platform for trainees to network with peers and also feature a career panel discussion to provide insights into career options in and out of academia.
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 7, 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.
