The Gordon Research Seminar on Natural Products and Bioactive Compounds 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 research seminar will highlight multi-disciplinary topics related to the chemistry and biology of natural products and bioactive compounds. We strongly encourage the submission of abstracts related to organic synthesis, methodology development, chemical biology, biosynthesis, synthetic biology, and biological activity.
This program will include pioneering student and post doc talks chosen from submitted abstracts, an influential keynote speaker, and a career breakout session with mentors from a variety of different career paths.
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 27, 2019. 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.
