Young BSC academics attend international conference
The 2019 ASCB | EMBO Meeting organized by the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) was held in Washington, DC, the United States, on Dec 7.
Some members of the Chinese Biophysical Society (BSC), who have won the ASCB-BSC Youth Travel Awards, participated in the conference, and exhibited their posters during the event.
As the world's largest conference in the field of cell biological sciences, the event attracted about 6,000 experts and young scholars from around the globe.
Andrew Murray, Chairman of ASCB, and Erika Shugart, CEO of ASCB, attended the opening ceremony.
Bruce Stillman, CEO of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, gave a keynote speech entitled "Replication of Genomes in Eukaryotic Cells: Insights into the evolution of origin specifications and their relationship with gene silencing mechanisms".
The conference focused on cell biology as the fundamental basis of biology, and offered sessions on emerging topics such as nontraditional model organisms, and the use of computational modeling.
Li Min, Cao Zhen and Zhang Yanruo from BSC presented their researches to participants from all over the world at the poster exhibition of the conference, and exchanged ideas with global experts and academics.
Andrew Murray said that ASCB is committed to helping individual scientists and scientific communities to gain a better future. He hoped that BSC will give full play to the advantages of the society and jointly promote the cultivation and growth of individual young scientific researchers and academic groups.
