This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Membrane Transport Proteins is a unique forum for early career scientists, such as graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education, to present and exchange ideas.
This meeting is focused on the characterization of membrane transport proteins as well as methods used to understand their structure and function. Membrane transport proteins govern cellular processes in the human body through the movement of inorganic ions, small molecules, and macromolecules across a membrane, playing important roles in health and disease. This seminar will include both oral and poster presentations by early career scientist attendees. In addition, two exceptional keynote speakers will give talks on their cutting-edge research on membrane transport proteins as well as lessons on their career paths from academia and entrepreneurship.
