Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Oxygen Radicals 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 goal of this meeting is to discuss newest developments in the field of reactive oxygen species (ROS). The meeting aims to span from mechanistic studies to applied studies (e.g. medicine or biology) involving ROS. Young scientists will be given the opportunity to present advancements in scientific research and methodological tools and to discuss with peers. Additionally a mentoring and career development session will be held facilitating the exchange between young researchers with established experts in the field.

Young scientists from all fields (e.g. chemistry, biology, medicine…) dealing with ROS are encouraged to participate in order to reflect the entire spectrum and importance of ROS and to enable fruitful exchange between field.

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 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.
