Special Interest Subgroups
The deadline to submit a topic has passed. Starting May 31 you may submit an abstract for a chance to present a talk in the selected topics
Special Interest Subgroups are 3-hour member organized sessions that take a deeper dive into the various specialty subjects under the umbrella of cell biology. Organizers will select speakers, and arrange the schedule for the sessions.
New this year- All talks in a Special Interest Subgroup session will require an abstract submission. Members organizing these sessions will receive five complimentary submissions for invited speakers but can encourage others to submit as well. Organizers will have the opportunity to read through all abstracts submitted to their topic to allow them to design their sessions with the most cutting edge research available.

WHAT ATTENDEES SAY?
" The Special Interest Subgroups generated the most excitement at the meeting - they give a wide range of people get a chance to talk, they reflect what the membership finds interesting/exciting and it is all about the science and an exchange of ideas. "
"The subgroups are the most dynamic and well-attended part of the meeting. "
"The Saturday Subgroups are a wonderful learning opportunity."
