Gordon Research Conference: Animal-Microbe Symbioses

Recent Advances in Evolutionary and Functional Analyses of Symbiotic Interactions

June 18 – 23, 2023, Lucca, Italy

Chair: Thomas C.G. Bosch
Vice Chair: Martin Kaltenpoth

The Animal-Microbe Symbioses GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 21, 2023.

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Animal-Microbe Symbioses is again accompanied by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS):
Animal-Microbe Symbioses: Casual to Intimate Associations: Mechanisms Underlying the Stability of Symbioses

June 17 – 18, 2023, Application deadline: May 20, 2023
Chairs: Alejandro Manzano Marín and Nancy Obeng

The Animal-Microbe Symbioses GRS provides 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. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.

For the third time in a row, the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Animal-Microbe Symbioses will be accompanied by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). It brings together an international group of graduate and post-doctoral researchers, as well as others with similar levels of expertise. Participants will present and discuss findings and directions at the frontier of symbiosis research in talks and posters. This opportunity to engage will promote collaborations, new research directions, and nurture professional networks with both peers and mentors before the start of the larger GRC. We strongly encourage participants to also consider attending the associated GRC, which will take place immediately after.
