Cell Biology 2021

Labroots and the Cell Biology Planning Committee are pleased to announce the 5th Annual Cell Biology Virtual Event, providing an opportunity to discuss recent discoveries in biological research, advancements in techniques, and tool developments in cell research.

Cell Biology 2021 Virtual Event will continue to create a valuable platform for inspiring global and interdisciplinary collaboration in a virtual environment, to study cells – their physiological properties, structure, the organelles they contain, environmental interactions, life cycle, division and death, on a microscopic and molecular level.

This year's event includes the following tracks:

  • Basic Cell Biology
  • Translational Cell Biology
  • Quantitative Cell Biology
  • Extracellular Vesicles

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 Cell Biology Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Continuing Education
Labroots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 30 credits.
