Streptococcal Biology (GRS) - CANCELLED
This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC’s highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
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.
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.
