The Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) provide a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers.
The field of chronobiology is a rich area that encompasses single cell organisms all the way to humans. The concept of chronobiology is simplified by the Eskinogram, where an input changes the phase of an oscillator and leads to changes in the output. This happens in bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals. In a way, circadian rhythms may have been the earliest brain, where environmental input is interpreted by the brain and then leads to an action. The inputs to the clock are the simple, light and temperature to the complex social interactions. The oscillators are varied molecular machines that has both transcription, translation and posttranslational modification. The outputs control all aspects of the organism physiology and behavior.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the “Chronobiology (GRS)” Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The Chronobiology Gordon Research Conference will be held 10-15 October 2021 at Mount Snow in West Dover, VT USA.
