March 10-11, 2018

Location

Hotel Galvez
Galveston, TX Site Information

Organizers

Chairs:
Sabrina Koch & Jeremy Bakelar

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by February 10, 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 10, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

Biological membranes act as a protective barrier between the cell and the extracellular environment. This compartmentalisation also forms different environmental locations, of which each harbours unique features enabling different metabolic reactions. To ensure cell homeostasis, an exchange between the individual compartments, such as protein transport, is an essential process.

The Gordon Research Seminar on Protein Transport Across Membranes will deal with understanding protein translocation across and into membranes and the underlying molecular mechanism and regulation in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells using different experimental approaches, including structural, biochemical, and biophysical techniques. This seminar is a wonderful opportunity for graduate students and Post-docs to discuss science that is at the frontier of the field in a small and open atmosphere. We support the presentation and discussion of unpublished work, while providing a unique atmosphere to interact, network, and advance our understanding of protein translocation.

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 December 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.

Related Meeting

This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Protein Transport Across Cell Membranes" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
