The Gordon Research Seminar on Cell Biology of Megakaryocytes and Platelets 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. The focus of this meeting is to bring together our understanding of the processes involved in the development of the megakaryocyte and platelet cell lineage and how these cells can contribute to health and disease. Submission of abstracts covering work from a range of topics including but not limited to megakaryocyte lineage development, platelet signalling, the role of platelets in disease and immunity, new therapeutic approaches to diseases involving the megakaryocyte lineage and new techniques to investigate platelet and megakaryocyte function are all welcome. This GRS meeting will provide young investigators a unique platform for presentation and active discussion of their latest and most innovative work. Researchers will be encouraged to discuss ongoing challenges and to develop an extensive international network to establish future collaborations between the fields of megakaryocyte and platelet biology. Through a Mentorship Component, this GRS will also provide young investigators with valuable career advice from experts who conduct basic and translational research both within and outside of academia.
