The Gordon Research Seminar on Sensory Transduction in Microorganisms 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 signaling and adaptability. We welcome young scientists from all backgrounds to attend the GRS in Ventura Beach, CA. Here, trainees at the graduate student and post-doctoral fellow levels, from around the globe, will present and discuss the latest developments in the field. This GRS will be held the weekend immediately prior to its associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC). The GRS is a trainee-led forum that is designed to complement the GRC with a focus on guiding trainees on 1) presenting and discussing scientific findings and 2) providing a relaxed and friendly environment for trainees to network within the scientific community.
This seminar will allow trainees the opportunity for networking with their peers from other institutes, presenting and discussing their latest research, building their confidence for the upcoming GRC, recognition for their own outstanding scientific accomplishments, and career building and mentorship.
The 2022 STIM GRS scientific focus will be on topics from the latest research revealing how microorganisms sense and adapt to changing conditions. The GRS will embrace the interdisciplinary aspect of this field with an array of oral and poster presentations from molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology fields.
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 October 15, 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.
