Seattle Cell Science Symposium 2019

Seattle Cell Science Symposium 2019

An open house showcasing Seattle-area cell biology research

Thank you for joining us for the fourth annual Seattle Cell Science Symposium, a full-day event showcasing research in the Seattle-area cell biology community.

The Seattle Cell Science Symposium is an event for scientists in our region to share current work through presentations, lightning talks and poster sessions. Community engagement and open science are central principles of the Allen Institute for Cell Science, and we look forward to the Seattle community coming together for this event.

Call for Posters

Poster Submission is now closed.

We invite the submission of poster proposals that report new scientific developments in the broad field of cellular biology.

The Seattle Cell Science Symposium will feature talks from a variety of Seattle-area institutions. We look forward to including poster presentations from the local cell biology community. There is limited space, so please submit your proposal by the deadline. Late submissions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Space is limited, please only submit one poster proposal per person.
  • All material must be the work of the authors listed and appropriately referenced.
