The 60th Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences will be held Tuesday May 16 to Saturday May 20, 2017 at the Shaw Centre in the heart of nation’s capital Ottawa. To coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday the theme of the 2017 CSMB meeting is “Celebrating Canadian Molecular Biosciences – from Organelles to Systems Biology”.

For the first time in its history, the 2017 Annual CSMB Conference will concurrently highlight two important biomedical themes, Systems Biology and Organelle Dynamics, to help foster inter-disciplinary science and innovation. Thus, the 2017 CSMB Conference will feature talks from national and international leaders in a broad range of topics including but not limited to membrane biology, trafficking, signaling, gene and regulatory networks and computational biology. CSMB2017 will also cover health related topics such cancer biology, regenerative medicine, rare diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. Our outstanding keynote speaker is Dr. Brenda Andrews (University of Toronto), a leader in the field of functional genomics.

Beyond the slate of outstanding invited speakers, more than half of the oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. There will also be the CSMB Award Lectures and Poster Sessions. On May 17th prior to the official start of the conference, will be a day of workshops for trainees on various themes and a mini-symposium focusing on women in STEMs.

Hosting the CSMB Annual Conference in Ottawa will allow us to highlight the ground-breaking research that is occurring across our county to both our federal government and the public. For the first time ever the CSMB Conference will also have an organized slate of outreach events.

We have worked hard to keep the meeting affordable and accessible, including a range of accommodations in the heart of the capital. Register early to enjoy savings. Registration will open in January.

2017 is going to be a year-long celebration for Canada and Ottawa is THE place to come celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation. Including a closing night party at the Canadian Museum of Nature in the Dinosaur Gallery.

Hope to see you in Ottawa in 2017.

The IFCB (International Federation for Cell Biology) and APOCB (Asian Pacific Organization for Cell Biology) are two of the primary international organizations for cell biology and their joint mission is to foster cell biology research and Cell Biology Societies in countries across the world. Consequently, the 13th IFCB congress and the 8th APOCB Meeting will be held in Hyderabad, India, together with the Indian Society of Cell Biology (ISCB) and its 41st annual meeting. This meeting also commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Asian-Pacific organization for Cell Biology.

This will be the first-ever joint meeting of these two International cell biology organizations, and will see cell biologists from across the world coming together to showcase and discuss their work.
