The growing field of tissue repair and regeneration encompasses strategies as diverse as gene and cell therapies, extracellular matrix re-formulation, tissue and organ 3D-printing and the design of bioactive nanomaterials and scaffolds, to name a few. With such a wide breadth of innovative approaches populating the field, teams set to make significant advances in regenerative medicine will undoubtedly require active collaboration between scientists with backgrounds in all such disciplines. This seminar aims to bring together outstanding junior members of the cell biology, tissue engineering and materials science communities to help set the foundation for such highly interdisciplinary environment.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Tissue Repair and Regeneration 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. In addition to scientific discussion, this meeting will provide mentoring tailored to specific career stages and paths as well as networking opportunities for all participants.
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 March 8, 2019. 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.
