Tentative 2019 program, subject to change: 2019 Draft Program

You can check out our 2018 program here: 2018 Final Program

Our program includes several scientific sessions focused on the main topic of translational cell biology, showcasing how positively impacting patient outcomes starts with understanding fundamental mechanisms in cell biology. The goal of our symposium is to help bridge the gap between basic cell biology and translational research by facilitating discussion amongst students, postdocs, faculty, and clinicians working on important questions in a variety of fields. We therefore invite abstracts covering any topics within the broader scope of basic cell biology, including cell biology of non-mammalian systems, or any aspect of clinical or translational science, from experimental studies all the way to clinical trials. With both poster and oral sessions, where you can hear from faculty, postdocs, and graduate students, along with our keynote lecture from Dr. Samara Reck-Peterson, there will be ample opportunity to learn about the most up-to-date research in various fields within the broader scope of cell biology and translational research. We hope to encourage new collaborations and friendships by networking during our poster sessions, discussion groups, lunch hour, and evening reception.
