Roundtable Discussions

Roundtable Discussions are informal networking opportunities where attendees can connect with each other to discuss important topics in the cell biology community. Topics can range from education to scientific to climate and culture and innovation. This is an opportunity to learn, share, and dive deep into the issues that are most important to you.

Roundtable Discussions will be held in the exhibit hall during the lunchtime at Cell Bio 2023. Attendees can grab lunch and join a topic table of their interest. Roundtable Discussions will be led by a table leader.
