The Plasminogen Activation and Extracellular Proteolysis 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.
The 2024 Gordon Research Seminar on Plasminogen Activation and Extracellular Proteolysis is an exciting opportunity for researchers, graduate students, post doctoral fellows, and scientists to come together to share their latest findings and ideas related to translational research in the field of fibrinolysis and proteolysis. The seminar is titled "Advancement in Translational Research in Fibrinolysis and Proteolysis” as it will focus on emerging scientific advances with examples of bench research being translated into clinical applications and vice versa.
The seminar will cover a wide range of topics, including plasminogen activators and proteases in cardiovascular and thrombotic disorders, as well as in aging, neurological, cerebrovascular and metabolic diseases, immunological disorders, tissue remodeling, and regeneration, trauma, and cancer. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with other scientists from diverse backgrounds and discuss their research and findings in a multidisciplinary environment.
The seminar will include a special session featuring Dr. Ian Roberts, the keynote speaker, addressing emerging studies in the translational research of fibrinolysis. Additionally, there will be a mentoring session designed to aid graduate students and post-doctoral fellows choose a suitable career path after their training. The panelists for the mentoring session will come from both academia and industry settings, providing a diverse range of perspectives and insights.
Overall, this GRS promises to be an exciting and valuable opportunity for scientists and researchers in the field of plasminogen activation and extra cellular proteolysis to come together, learn from one another, and build professional networks that will benefit their work for years to come.
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 November 12, 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.
