Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 1, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline.

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 April 29, 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 Synthetic Biology 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 GRS will provide an opportunity for early career researchers to network with other scientists and to explore new state-of-the-art techniques, approaches, and applications.

The focus of this meeting will be on expanding biological function through synthetic biology. Attendees will present posters and participate in three seminar sessions focusing on genome scale, pathway scale, and device scale synthetic biology. A final "challenge" session will include breakout groups brainstorming ideas for the next biotech start-up or for new niches in academic research.

Those applying to the GRS are strongly encouraged to submit an additional application to the Synthetic Biology GRC.

Funding Notice: The GRS and GRC have special funding available to encourage participation from underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups. Applicants who would like to give an oral presentation should note whether they would like to be considered for this funding.

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 April 29, 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.
