Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Cornea and Ocular Surface Biology and Pathology 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 focus of this meeting is to bring together early career ocular researchers and foster creativity and collaborations for future research. The topics covered in this meeting will include investigators with diverse interests in cornea and ocular surface biology. Therefore, the meeting will evolve around the latest advances in cornea, limbus, tear film, lacrimal and meibomian glands, anterior eye immunology/infection, tissue homeostasis and development, ophthalmic genetics, innervation/pain/itch as well as, progress in regenerative medicine and stem cell biology that affects all components of the anterior eye. This meeting will also include a mentoring session from both leading established investigators and early career investigators on pathways to success.

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 November 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.
