Applications for this meeting must be submitted by January 13, 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 November 10, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
The Gordon Research Seminar on the Chemistry and Biology of Peptides is focused on providing graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and other early-career scientists the opportunity to present, exchange, and discuss new data, ideas, and cutting edge science.
This meeting will focus on recent innovations in the chemistry and biology of peptides. Topics of discussion will include recent advances in the synthesis of challenging peptides, the development of biologically active peptides, and emerging applications of peptides such as peptidic biomaterials. The seminar will include both oral and poster presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. It will also include a career panel with senior researchers in both industry and academia.
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 November 10, 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.
