The 4th Annual ShanghaiTech BioFrontier
FoCB2016
Frontier of Cell Biology
16-17 Dec. 2016, Shanghai

About

The 4th Annual ShanghaiTech BioFrontier: Frontier of Cell Biology (FoCB2016), organized by the School of Life Science and Technology (SLST) at ShanghaiTech University will take place in the newly completed campus of ShanghaiTech University (199 Huanke Road, Pudong District, Shanghai 201205, China) on 16-17 December 2016.

 

The purpose of this conference is to provide an opportunity to discuss the growing fields of cell biology in areas such as metabolic cell biology, mechanical cell biology, organelle dynamics, noncoding RNAs, cell signaling, systems cell biology, quantitative cell biology, chemical cell biology and physical cell biology. Since the frontier of cell biology has drawn people from a wide array of backgrounds working in many different experimental systems, we hope that by bringing many of us together for such a forum we can begin to forge an interactive community of people.

Although there is no registration fee, registration is required for attending this conference. For registration, please click here.
