The Gordon Research Seminar on Signaling by Adhesion Receptors 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.
A myriad of biological processes (i.e. development, homeostasis, and disease) are driven by the interaction and integration of signaling modules by adhesion receptors. We approach this topic drawing from diverse fields such as cell and developmental biology, bioengineering, biophysics, biomedical research, and systems biology. This GRS will allow for a unique opportunity for early career scientists to present their work, allowing them to gain constructive feedback and career development advice. In addition, this will be a special opportunity to network with peers and prepare attendees for the following 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 April 16, 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.
