What Attendees Are Saying

“I can’t wait to attend this year’s in-person ASCB annual meeting. The ASCB annual meeting has always been a great place to catch up on the latest and hottest research in cell biology and catch up with diverse colleagues in the field.”

–Rong Li, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine

“The ASCB annual meeting provides a wonderful opportunity for trainees to interact with scientists in their field and be exposed to new scientific areas in cell biology. The annual meeting was the first conference I attended as a trainee, and I am excited to be returning this year in person!”

–Leslie Weaver, Indiana University

“Before I started my Ph.D., I was trained in biochemistry and molecular biology. The ASCB annual meeting was always so fascinating and opened my eyes to the world of cell biology. I learned so much at the ASCB meetings. It is still my favorite conference to attend.”

–Casper Hoogenrad, Genentech

“The Annual Meeting has had a huge impact on my career and is a highlight for me each year! I love how it brings together scientists from diverse backgrounds and career stages, and provides a fantastic networking opportunity to connect with the community and initiate collaborations.”

Beata Edyta Mierzwa, Postdoctoral Researcher, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research

“The ASCB meeting has repeatedly proved its worth to me over the years.  Every year we (my students and I) learn about new research and technology, share our results with the community, and enjoy outstanding networking opportunities."

–Bill Bement, University of Wisconsin-Madison
