Streptococcal Biology (GRS) - Physiology, Host-Interactions and Vaccine Development in Streptococcal Pathogenesis

The Gordon Research Seminar on Streptococcal 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.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 18, 2020. 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 May 15, 2020. Please refer to the application instructions in the Conference Description section below for more details (if available).

This inaugural GRS on Streptococcal Biology will feature the many aspects of current streptococcal research with special emphasis on physiology, host-interactions, and vaccine development being done by graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. Additionally, through invited speakers, this GRS will address current topics in the field of scientific research spanning from mentoring approaches, promoting diversity in science, and career prospects in academia and industry.

This GRS will be held in conjunction with the “Streptococcal Biology” Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.

Financial assistance is available for qualified applicants through the GRC Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority Fellowship Program.
