The Gordon Research Seminar on Neuroethology: Behavior, Evolution and Neurobiology is a unique forum conceived for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to present their latest research, exchange ideas and discuss new cutting-edge technologies and experimental approaches. This meeting also provides the opportunity for young researchers to interact with other scientists and to receive mentorship from senior members of the field.
Advances in molecular methods and technologies are providing researchers with unprecedented tools for investigating the genetic, cellular, and circuit-level mechanisms underlying behavior across diverse animal models. This meeting will focus on integrating both novel and traditional approaches to address long-standing questions in Neuroethology.
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.
An outline of the program components for this GRS is displayed below. The seminar chair is currently developing their detailed program schedule, which will include the speakers they select from submitted abstracts, in addition to any additional components outlined below. The detailed program will be available by May 27, 2019. Please check back for updates.
