Online Zoom platform.

The Ontario Cell Biology Symposium will bring together researchers from around the province with the aim of creating new research opportunities and fostering new collaborations. This Symposium aims to provide a forum for students and postdoctoral fellows to present their research. This meeting will cover important topics in cell biology, including signal transduction, metabolism, organelles, cellular architecture, cellular trafficking and advanced microscopy, with a portion of the meeting dedicated to translational studies and emerging methodologies. We aim to create an inclusive environment for this meeting, and one that will feature diverse participants.

In 2021, the Ontario Cell Biology Symposium will have an online format. The meeting (all online) will be held from Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 16th, with talks available through an online platform on each of the 5 days from 11:30am to 1:30pm
