The 2019 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Polyamines is a unique forum for graduate students, post-doctoral scholars and other early stage researchers with similar education and experiences to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Featuring discussions led by world-renowned leaders in the Polyamine field, the 2019 GRS program will offer a wide scope of groundbreaking Polyamine research topics, from the role and regulation of polyamines in cellular metabolism to polyamine-targeted therapies in human health and disease. Bringing together students, young scientists, and senior principal investigators from around the world, the Polyamine GRS is an exclusive opportunity for young investigators to gain mentorship, build collaborative networks, and to prepare for active participation in the Polyamine GRC.
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 March 22, 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 April 22, 2019. Please check back for updates.
