The Organellar Channels and Transporters GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
This meeting will focus on recent scientific advances into the structural and functional interplay of ion channels and transporters. The discussion topics will be focused on intracellular ion channels and transporters, including but not limited to: high-resolution (cryo-EM and X-ray crystallographic) structures, membrane trafficking and localization, physiological regulation and synthetic pharmacology, electrophysiology, protein interactions, optical imaging of inter-organellar contacts, and their applications in basic research, drug design, and preclinical studies.
With the foundations and knowledge gained during the GRS sessions, we strongly encourage our GRS participants to extend this fulfilling scientific experience by attending the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Organellar Channels and Transporters that will take place immediately following the GRS.
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 30, 2023. 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.
