The Gordon Research Seminar on Mutagenesis 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.
The goal of the 2022 Mutagenesis GRS is to give young scientists a unique opportunity to share and have insightful discussions on different areas of research in the field of mutagenesis, as well as foster professional connections. In line with the main conference, the 2022 Mutagenesis GRS aims to be highly inclusive and representative of the diverse research areas, model organisms and experimental strategies used in this field. The presentations will span several research areas, including environmental and endogenous factors that cause mutations, pathways involved in the repair of early DNA damage and the pathological consequences of these events. All attendees are encouraged to present posters of their ongoing and unpublished work. Scientific talks will be selected from submitted abstracts.
In addition to science and networking, discussion on personal and professional development will be fostered by a career panel session that will include scientists from different backgrounds and some outstanding women in science. Panelists will share and answer questions from young scientists about their personal experience, professional challenges and insights into career development.
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 March 11, 2022. 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.
