Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering 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 GRS will feature three focused sessions, including:

  • Building Blocks: Engineering and Understanding Tissue Microenvironments, Surfaces, Structures, and Materials
  • Instructive Biomaterials: Drug Delivery, Cell/Gene Therapy, and Immunomodulation
  • Interdisciplinary Research: Translational Technologies and Models

The goal of this meeting is to highlight to the breadth and range of topics within the field, but also provide an inclusively broad platform for trainees to showcase their important work. Additionally, there will be an "Alternative Career Paths" panel at the end of the meeting featuring speakers within Science Communication, Start-Ups, and Government Research, who will describe their transition from their academic (PhD or Post-Doc) positions into to their current role and stick around for questions and discussion.

Interested applicants are encouraged to submit abstracts for a talk and/or poster within the sessions described above. Please do not hesitate to contact the chair if you have any questions or concerns.

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 April 22, 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.
