The Thiol-Based Redox Regulation and Signaling GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
Oxidative modifications of thiols and other functional groups are important in many cellular processes and imbalances in redox-associated pathways are often accompanied by the development of diseases and an altered cell viability. This meeting tries to cover different perspectives on oxidative (thiol) modifications generated by physiologically relevant oxidants and their cellular consequences in physiological and pathophysiological scenarios. Discussion topics will range from insides in thiol-based cellular redox signaling and regulation to lipid peroxidation and ferroptosis. Additionally, the focus will be on the development of novel tools to study thiol modifications and thiol-dependent processes.
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 7, 2024. 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 14, 2024. Please check back for updates.
