Applications for this meeting must be submitted by February 3, 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 3, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).
The 2018 Gordon Research Seminar in Marine Natural Products will extend the tradition of engaging and inspiring graduate students and post-doctoral researchers in the field. Participation in the meeting and presentation of pioneering research will expose young researchers to new ideas, provide opportunities to develop vital scientific communication skills, and foster a sense of community that will enable them to maximize their experience at the subsequent Gordon Research Conference.
The seminar will emphasize the presentation and discussion of research that demonstrates excellence and advances in the field of Marine Natural Products. Topics will span metabolite discovery and characterization, biosynthesis and evolution, chemical synthesis and medicinal chemistry, bioactivity and mechanism, and chemical ecology. Interdisciplinary and translational approaches will be highlighted.
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 3, 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.
