Chairs:
Lokesh Sharma & Jaime Hook

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by February 17, 2018. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline.

Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Biology of Acute Respiratory Infection 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.

Dynamic interactions between microorganisms and the host result in either successful infection or effective pathogen removal. This meeting will focus on the strategies utilized by respiratory pathogens to establish infections and the mechanisms used by hosts for defense, tolerance and resistance. Renowned researchers will discuss recent advancements in this area during this meeting.

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 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.
