Cell Biology 2017
20 34 3799

LabRoots announces a new addition to our virtual conference line up for 2017, Cell Biology! Join us in advancing basic biology and recent tools and techniques in cell research by coming together with like-minded colleagues.

Cell Biology 2017 creates a valuable platform for inspiring global and interdisciplinary collaboration in a virtual environment. The Conference will bring together professors, post-docs, biologists and biomedical professionals from all over the world. Attend interactive sessions, first-class exhibitions and virtual poster presentations.

A cell is the smallest individual unit of any living organism. Cell biology studies cells – their physiological properties, structure, the organelles they contain, environmental interactions, life cycle, division and death, on a microscopic and molecular level. This field spans through most scientific disciplines, studying cell imaging, stem cells, cell physiology and structure, cell signaling, cell culture, and translational biology, and encompassing other scientific fields such as cancer biology, neuroscience, genetics, bioengineering and so much more.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global cell biology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Topics for this years virtual conference include:

  • Organelles and Membrane Dynamics 
  • Cytoskeletal Dynamics, Mechanics, and Cell Motility
  • Cell Biology of Neurons 
  • Cell Signaling and Cancer
  • Cellular Metabolism
  • Multicellular Interactions, Tissues and Organs

Continuing Education

By participating in this virtual event and watching webcast presentations, you can earn Free Continuing Education (PACE) and/or Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. To earn educational credits, you must view an entire presentation. Following the presentation you must click on the educational credit link provided for that particular speaker and follow the required process. Once you have completed the process, you will receive a certificate for the educational credit.

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. Posters should be submitted as a PowerPoint file. Presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text. This content is not peer reviewed. Submission is free.


Enter the following information to this Submission Form:

  • Poster Title
  • Your Name
  • Your Institution
  • Your Email
  • Abstract describing the poster

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and decisions regarding acceptance will be made as abstracts are received. You will be notified within one week of receipt about acceptance. Further details and registration materials will be provided at that time. You do not have to be present in order to have a poster displayed. Only those abstracts approved by LabRoots may display posters at this event.

If accepted, you will also have the opportunity to record a 3-5 minute summary video for each poster. LabRoots will work with each individual to create these videos. Video links and email contact information will be included on each poster displayed.

  • M. Neal Guentzel, PhD
    Professor, The University of Texas at San Antonio
  • Laura Lowery, PhD
    Assistant Professor of Biology, Boston College
      Laura Anne grew up in the San Fernando Valley outside of Los Angeles. She discovered her love of academia and biomedical research while an undergrad at the University of California, San Diego. In the lab of Dr. Bill Schafer, she studied the neural circuitry underlying worm egg-laying behavior. In 2008, Laura Anne received her PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working in the lab of Dr. Hazel Sive at the Whitehead Institute, where she pioneered research studying early brain ventricle morphogenesis. Laura Anne then did post-doctoral research in the Department of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School, in the labs of Dr. David Van Vactor and Dr. Gaudenz Danuser, where she became fascinated by the inner workings of the neuronal growth cone. In 2014, Laura Anne began as an Assistant Professor in Biology at Boston College, and she has obtained research funding from the NIH, American Cancer Society, and March of Dimes. Her current research focuses on the cytoskeletal mechanisms that promote cell migration in neurons, neural crest cells, and metastatic cancer cells.

    • Alison Wirshing, PhD
      Graduate Student, Northeastern University
        Alison Wirshing received her BS in Biology from the University of New Hampshire in 2012 where she worked in the labs of Dr.s Farag, Jahnke, and Minocha on an interdisciplinary project marrying plant genetics and molecular biology with chemical engineering towards the goal of improving biofuel production from microalgae. While staying true to her passion for basic cellular biology, Alison chose a different research topic for her doctoral work and transitioned to working with C. elegans in the Cram Lab at Northeastern University. Currently, her work is focused on using the C. elegans spermatheca as a model contractile tube for identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying cell response to mechanical perturbation. Specifically, she is interested in how the actin cytoskeleton reorganizes in response to cell stretch and how this influences tissue contractility. molecular mechanisms underlying cell response to mechanical perturbation.
