#ASCB15

THE AFFORDABLE MEETING

YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO MISS

Great value that will pay off in the short…and long term

See the future of cell biology. Be the future of cell biology.

By the time scientists arrive at the San Diego Convention Center in December 2015, an estimated 40,000 papers on cell biology will have been published since the 2014 meeting. Even more data will be available on imaging, protein structures, genomics, gene expression, and more. Our challenge is to convert this information into meaningful knowledge to understand how cells work.

The 2015 ASCB meeting overarching theme is about making connections at different scales, from the intracellular level to the tissue level, to the organism level all the way up to the macrocosmic level, all in the light of big data and information integration. This integration will help us ask the right questions and find answers to the challenging problems in medicine, living systems, and ecosystems.

Cell biology is increasingly relevant not only to those who think of themselves as cell biologists but also to more specialized researchers in neuroscience, immunology, cancer biology, synthetic biology, biophysics, molecular medicine, and more.

ASCB 2015 is also about your training, your career, and your lab. Find mentors. Find friends. Find collaborators. Find funding. Find out what’s next.


KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Lubchenco, former director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, now studies a vast meta-ecosystem along the U.S. Pacific coast. Chisholm is an MIT biologist who explores oceanic metabolism through a cyanobacterium. In separate talks, they will advance the thesis that a better understanding of cell technology, structure, and function are critical to coming to grips with the global impacts of human activity.

Want to learn hands-on how to handle big data sets?

We have three workshops offering practical skills training:

  1. Computational Methods for RNA Sequencing Analysis
  2. Quantitative Analysis and Visualization of Signaling Networks
  3. Image Analysis in Quantitative Microscopy
