About Us

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory invites participation in our meetings & courses program from all legitimate applicants, irrespective of gender, race, religious belief or nationality (see our Diversity Policy)

Meetings & Conferences
Cold Spring Harbor meetings bring together scientists from all over the world to present and evaluate new data and ideas in rapidly moving areas of biological research. A key feature of Cold Spring Harbor meetings is that the majority of talks are chosen from openly submitted abstracts (with the exception of our annual Symposium). Programs are put together by organizers on the basis of the abstracts, and so little advance information is generally available about precise details of the schedule. Many of the talks include plenty of discussion of unpublished work, making these meetings a must for graduate students and senior investigators alike. Researchers who attend Cold Spring Harbor meetings cite them as among the most informative, influential, and enjoyable scientific conferences that one can attend.

Courses & Workshops
Our program of courses complement our conferences in terms of diversity of topic across the spectrum of the biological sciences - supported by federal and private funds, each course offers the successful applicant the opportunity to become rapidly immersed in a new set of concepts and techniques. Teaching faculty and "students" openly cite the experience of taking a Cold Spring harbor course as a highlight in their professional career.
