This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule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 NOX Family NADPH Oxidases 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 ideas in an informal setting.
NOX enzymes have been identified as important mediators in cellular communication. During this seminar we will discuss how NOX-dependent oxidant production promotes redox signaling. This seminar will also include sessions about novel mechanisms of NOX activation as well as their detection in vitro and in vivo. Special emphasis will be on the newest developments of the role of NOX in health and disease, and how they can be pharmacological targets for drug development. The session will end with a keynote lecture focusing on the potential role of NOX4 as a therapeutic target in the pathology of pulmonary fibrosis by Victor Thannickal.
The focus of this seminar will be on early-career scientists that will have the opportunity to present their work via oral talks as well as during poster presentations. The meeting will also include a career development session to discuss how to successfully apply for fellowship and grant possibilities.
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 February 29, 2020. 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.
