Location

Ventura Beach Marriott
Ventura, CA Site Information

Organizers

Chairs:
Michael J. Gebhardt & Susanne Brenzinger

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by December 16, 2017. 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 October 13, 2017. 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 Sensory Transduction in Microorganisms 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 2018 STIM GRS will explore the many facets of microbial signal transduction as assessed by cutting-edge techniques in biochemistry, imaging, molecular genetics, transcriptional regulation, two-component regulatory systems, cell-cell communications and microbial locomotion. Particular focus will be given to how microbes sense the environment, translate those signals and implement the appropriate response. The meeting will conclude with a grant writing workshop featuring break out sessions for investigators based in the US and Europe.

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 October 13, 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.
