Meeting Description

Overview

Spirochetes are an evolutionarily distinct phylum of bacteria that continues to pose a significant threat to both animal and human health. The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on the Biology of Spirochetes (BoS) goes well beyond the pathogenesis of these unusual bacteria and will cover topics related to chemotaxis, vector dynamics, and unique metabolic features that make spirochetes capable of thriving in diverse and disparate environments. The third edition of the BoS GRS will bring together wonderfully talented junior scientist from all over the globe to share their findings while providing ample opportunity for networking and career development.

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 20, 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.
