Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Bioorganic Chemistry 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 first Gordon Research Seminar in Bioorganic Chemistry (featuring Peter Schultz as the keynote speaker) will focus on chemical approaches to answering some of biology's biggest questions while providing graduate students and postdocs the opportunity to become acquainted with their peers prior to the GRC, to share and listen to cutting-edge research, and to network with each other.

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 10, 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.
