Applications for this meeting must be submitted by February 17, 2018. 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 December 17, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
The Gordon Research Seminar on Autophagy in Stress, Development and Disease is a unique forum intended for graduate students, post docs, and early career investigators with similar levels of experience and education to present innovative research and exchange ideas focused on new developments in the field of autophagy.
In 2018, we will be hosting the fourth Gordon Research Seminar on Autophagy, and are very excited to focus on four main areas: (1) the foundational science which resulted in the 2016 Nobel Prize to elucidate the underlying mechanism in autophagy; (2) new discoveries in regulation of autophagy at the mechanistic level; (3) novel applications of autophagy to physiology and pathophysiological diseases; (4) and the implementation of a mentoring component to promote scientific growth in the next generation of autophagy researchers.
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 December 17, 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.
