Organizers

Chairs:
Ute A. Hellmich & Smriti Mishra

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 27, 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 March 24, 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 Mechanisms of Membrane Transport 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.

This meeting will focus on technical and functional advances in membrane transport research, specifically membrane protein dynamics and protein-lipid/protein-ligand interactions. A central aspect will be on novel techniques to tackle such topics, thus delivering novel insights and discoveries relevant for processes underlying the basic chemistry of life and yielding insights into pathobiological phenomena such as substance abuse, depression, drug resistance or cancer progression. A dedicated panel discussion on different career paths with a strong focus on audience-driven discussions will also be included.

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 March 24, 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.
