Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 8, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by May 5, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description


The Gordon Research Seminar on Angiogenesis 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 2017 Angiogenesis GRS will focus on recent advances in the mechanisms of endothelial cell specification, differentiation and dynamic migratory behaviour required to build and maintain blood vessels. Endothelial cells are able to integrate and co-ordinate a range of extra-cellular, intra-cellular and inter-cellular signals to form a functional vascular network. The aim of this meeting is to present and discuss the most recent findings in these processes using a range of innovative in vivo and in vitro models. The meeting will also include an open panel discussion on career development from senior scientists at different career stages.

Application Instructions

The meeting 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 Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by May 5, 2017. 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 Deadline section above.
