The Gordon Research Seminar on Oxygen Radicals is a forum for early-career scientists to present and exchange new data and cutting-edge ideas with peers and mid-late career scientists. The meeting provides an inclusive environment that allows graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education, together in an intimate setting, to network and collaborate with each other and with leading experts in the field of oxidative biology and medicine.
The goal of this meeting is to discuss recent advances in the field of redox chemistry (reactive oxygen species) and how these advances apply to our knowledge of translational topics in biology, medicine, and disease. The meeting will feature discussions, presentations, and posters on topics including the chemistry of free radicals and reactive oxidants, their role in influencing metabolism, modulating inflammation, regulating cell signaling, and the advancement of methodological tools to study reactive oxygen species in models of healthy and pathological biology.
Additionally, early-career scientists will be able to engage in presentations on new and innovative data and methodologies in a format that hones leadership skills as a discussion leader. Of particular value, this meeting will also feature a mentorship/career development session that enables early-career scientists to hear from a diverse panel of scientists on topics spanning various stages of scientific career development, focusing on a nuanced discussion on responsibilities and time management strategies for a successful transition into post-trainee life. Moreover, our meeting will feature a keynote presentation from an investigator with high accolades in the Oxygen Radicals community.
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 October 29, 2021. 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.
