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 virtual networking rooms throughout the duration of Cell Bio Virtual 2020. Take a break, grab a snack, and join a virtual topic "table" of your interest. Roundtable Discussions will be led by a table leader.
