The Gordon Research Seminar on Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids 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.
This seminar will precede and complement the Gordon Research Conference by stimulating discussion amongst early career lipid researchers on the mechanisms that regulate lipid metabolism, compartmentalization, and signaling in health and disease.
The meeting will be conducted in an informal setting and provides a unique opportunity for participants to present unpublished data, exchange ideas and network with peers. In addition to a scientific program encompassing the most groundbreaking aspects of lipid biology, the GRS will feature a career advice panel comprised of both junior investigators and established leaders in the field to discuss challenges that young scientists face such as choosing a lab, finding mentors, time management, communication, and more. We look forward to receiving your abstracts!
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 24, 2021. 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.
