The Gordon Research Seminar on Thiol-Based Redox Regulation and Signaling is a unique forum for early career scientists to present and exchange new data and cutting-edge ideas. This meeting is ideal for young scientists to extend their scientific network, conceive new ideas and foster future collaborations. The focus of this meeting is to provide an inviting social and intellectual atmosphere for the exchange, presentation, and discussion of new/unpublished data on cutting edge topics by young investigators with comparable experience and education that share a common interest in thiol oxidation, oxidative stress, and redox signaling.
Thiol-based redox modifications take part in many cellular processes, and alterations in the redox pathways are associated with the development and progression of many diseases. This meeting will focus on the basic biochemistry of redox signaling and its functional consequences in physiological and pathophysiological scenarios. Discussion topics include the development of novel tools to study thiol modifications and to monitor and image redox processes in real-time.
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 11, 2020. 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.
