2018 ASCB Doorstep Meeting: Stem Cells Under Stress

The title of this year’s Doorstep Meeting, an ASCB exclusive event open to just 200 participants, is “Beyond Homeostasis: Stem Cells Under Stress.” The meeting was co-curated by two leaders in the field of stem cell research—Elaine Fuchs, the Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor from Rockefeller University/HHMI, and Sean Morrison, director of the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute (CRI) at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center/HHMI.

The meeting will provide an overview of the field, with significant time allotted for discussion and interaction between audience and speakers, with the goal of inspiring the ACSB community to tackle the cell biology of stem cells and tissue regeneration. Elaine Fuchs, Rockefeller University, and Sean Morrison, UT Southwestern Medical Center, are the meeting organizers.

Students and postdocs who would like to explore opportunities in stem cell biology are encouraged to apply. There will be an opportunity for you to submit an abstract during the registration process. In addition to morning and afternoon poster sessions, multiple abstracts will be selected for short oral presentations. The deadline to submit an abstract is Wednesday, October 10. Submitting an abstract does not guarantee it will be accepted.


Doorstep Meeting Abstracts must be submitted separately from abstracts for the 2018 ASCB | EMBO Meeting!
