Conference Description

The newly established Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on "Photosensory Receptors and Signal Transduction" is a forum for students, post-docs, and researchers of similar training levels to discuss their work at an international meeting with their peers. The GRS meeting is traditionally held one day prior to the corresponding GRC. All participants in the seminar are expected to share their work though poster presentations and/or talks. Topics include all areas of photoreceptor research including biophysical, biochemical, and cell biological as well as the emerging area of photoreceptor engineering.

This seminar presents a unique opportunity for young scientists to discuss their experiences and opinions. Through these meetings, young scientists establish ongoing acquaintances and potential collaborations that are vital to the future of the field.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series is related to the "Photosensory Receptors & Signal Transduction" Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
