Seattle Cell Science Symposium 2018

An open house showcasing Seattle-area cell biology research

Thank you for joining 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 are pleased to bring the Seattle cell biology community together for this event.
