Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description


The Gordon Research Seminar on Lung Development, Injury & Repair is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is on the influence of development, injury, and/or repair pathways on the initiation and development of lung diseases. Chronic lung diseases such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and asthma are a global health burden, while acute lung injury is a common response to infectious pathogens, with lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths in the United States. A better understanding of progression of various lung diseases will lead to the development of cutting edge treatments. We invite all graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and physician fellows performing research in the area of related fields to submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation.

Application Instructions

The meeting 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 Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by May 29, 2015. 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 Deadline section above.
