Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on the Mechanisms of Epilepsy and Neural Synchronization

Saturday, August 18, 2018
Mount Snow, Somerset, VT
Chair(s): Amanda Hernan, PhD and Tristan Shuman, PhD

Conference Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other junior scientists to present new, unpublished data and discuss cutting-edge ideas amongst peers. The meeting is held in conjunction with the “Mechanisms of Epilepsy and Neuronal Synchronization” Gordon Research Conference (GRC), which is the preeminent basic science conference focused on epilepsy.
The GRS exclusively features posters and talks by graduate student and postdoc-level researchers as well as a keynote lecture from a leading epilepsy basic researcher and a mentorship session designed to provide trainees with established mentors willing to help guide their careers. Together, this makes for a rare platform to promote young epilepsy researchers, integrate trainees into the epilepsy research community, and impact their career trajectory.
