Our affiliate program Cold Spring Harbor Asia Conferences is based in Suzhou, China. Symposia, conferences and summer schools follow the Cold Spring Harbor tradition in showcasing merit-based scientific advances in an informal but intense atmosphere.

Paper on the fast dynamics of RNA genetic circuitry just published by participants of the inaugural CSHL Synthetic Biology summer course. See the CSHL Synbio course blog for more background and what to expect for those enrolling for CSHL SynBio 2.0 this July/August.

Thanks to federal funds, foundation, corporate and society support, we provided partial stipends to almost 550 graduate students and postdocs who are attending meetings or courses at Cold Spring Harbor in 2014.

Please enquire about funding for individual meetings by email to meetings@cshl.edu. Requests for financial aid for the courses are part of the application process.
