The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Proteoglycans 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 discuss cutting edge ideas.
The GRS is a small group setting that fosters open discussion about innovative research through formal presentation and social interaction. The Proteoglycans GRS will cover topics related to the functional aspects of proteoglycans and their regulatory roles in cellular processes. The meeting will address basic research questions about biosynthesis and structure of proteoglycans, their effect on biological processes in health and disease, as well as therapeutic and translational applications to improve human health.
The seminar will also feature a career panel session during which mentors at various stages of their careers will share experiences and answer career-focused questions from the trainees.
The GRS will be held in conjunction with the Gordon Research Conference on Proteoglycans, and we encourage applicants to submit abstracts to both meetings.
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 April 9, 2022. 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 May 9, 2022. Please check back for updates.
