History

1st FTCB Symposium

In response to a suggestion by their PI during lab meeting, a team of graduate students submitted a grant to organize the first Florida Translational Cell Biology Symposium held in 2017 at the University of Florida.

2nd FTCB Symposium

Following the popularity of the first symposium, we decided to make it an annual meeting. The 2nd Florida Translational Cell Biology Symposium was held at the University of Florida in 2018.

3rd FTCB Symposium

In 2019, we were still going strong with our third annual Florida Translational Cell Biology Symposium. A range of Florida institutions attended the meeting on the beautiful campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville.

1st STCB Symposium

After taking a year off due to the global pandemic, we returned in 2021 for a virtual meeting. Because of the online format, we were able to expand invitations to the Southeastern Translational Cell Biology Symposium to universities across the southeastern United States!
