This conference has been deferred to 2023 due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back soon for the 2023 schedule.
The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Preclinical Form and Formulation for Drug Discovery brings together the future of our field to discuss and share ideas on how to address challenges in drug development. It is a unique opportunity for young scientists, including graduate students, post-docs, and other early career scientists, to present unpublished cutting-edge research, and to exchange ideas and experiences leading to new collaborations as well as career development.
The focus of this GRS is on innovative drug development techniques for small, large and cell-based drug molecules. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to analytical characterization, drug delivery challenges, and drug product formulation and processing. Additionally, experts in academia and industry will share their experience and provide a general perspective on the future of pharmaceutical research.
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 26, 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.
