Seattle Cell Science Symposium 2018

Seattle Cell Science Symposium 2018

An open house showcasing Seattle-area cell biology research

Join us for the third 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.

Registration for this event has now closed. A limited number of walk-in spaces will be available on a case-by-case basis on the morning of the event. Please email with any questions.
