It’s the ‘big meeting’ I find most worthwhile - indeed, indispensable, - for networking, career development, and the most exciting science anywhere.

Abby Dernburg. University of California, Berkeley

Last year was my first time attending the ASCB|EMBO meeting and I learned so much! The diversity of topics and types of questions being asked were incredible, and provided me with new perspectives on my own research.

Anne d'Aquino, Northwestern University

The ASCB|EMBO meeting is the only one where you can hear outstanding science that covers the entire range of cell biology, plus have the opportunity to see new products and instruments and meet journal editorial staff and NIH Program Officials.

George Witman, University of Massachusetts Medical School

The ASCB|EMBO Meeting brings together the best scientists with the latest developments. It is a unique opportunity to see the freshest trends in cell biology, learn the new developments, make friends and have fun.

Leonardo Almeida-Souza, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, UK

Amazing meeting. It's THE meeting of the year to not miss. Great science, all fields of research are represented including very last discoveries on all model systems. The strong attendance by researchers from all over the world is a unique opportunity to make new contacts and collaborations. Hoping to attend the 2019 ASCB-EMBO meeting!!!

Chantal Roubinet, University College London, London (UCL)

The ASCB|EMBO meeting is great because there are so many opportunities to network with people in the field, learn about the latest groundbreaking research, and develop a new set of skills.

Cameron MacQuarrie, State University of New York Upstate Medical University

This meeting is a wonderful opportunity to learn, to network, and to grow professionally. I feel both inspired to pursue new lines of investigation and more knowledgeable of the tools to do so. Had I only known about this meeting a few years back, what a game changer it would have been. I will definitely return and will encourage my trainees to attend.

Ekaterina Heldwein, Tufts University School of Medicine

The annual ASCB meeting serves for me as a crash-course in cell biology. Over the years, I have also realized that several topics that were first introduced and discussed at this meeting have gone on to become the latest trends in science.

Noopur Vilas Khobrekar, Columbia University

The ASCB is The best platform to communicate one's science and receive feedback, as well as to keep abreast of the great science carried out all over the world. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet with greats in the different fields and to network. A truly inspiring meeting that brings together the best science from around the globe.
