Hemostasis (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Coagulation, Platelet Biology, and Inflammation


July 23-24, 2016


Stoweflake Conference Center
Stowe, VT


Leila Noetzli & Carleigh F. Hebbard

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Hemostasis 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.

The GRS is a small group setting that fosters open discussion about innovative research through formal presentation and social interaction. The Hemostasis GRS will cover topics related to hemostasis and thrombosis, platelet and megakaryocyte biology, therapeutics, and the role of hemostatic and thrombotic processes in sepsis and inflammation. The GRS will also feature a career panel session during which mentors at various stages of their careers will share experiences and answer career-focused questions from the trainees. The Hemostasis GRS will be held in conjunction with the Gordon Research Conference on Hemostasis, and we encourage applicants to submit abstracts to both meetings.
