Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminars on Protein Folding Dynamics is a meeting that provides a unique opportunity for graduate students, post-docs and early career scientists to present, discuss and receive feedback in their research.

The 2018 meeting will focus on the experimental and theoretical aspects of the protein folding field. The conference program will range from fundamental questions in protein folding, including the developing field of intrinsically disordered proteins, through to aggregation and misfolding.

The meeting will conclude with a Career Panel led by experienced researchers, who will be sharing their personal experiences and will be open to answering questions and giving advice regarding the challenges and rewards of the life as an academic scientist.

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 6, 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.
