The 80th Cold Spring Harbor Symposium focused on 21st Century Genetics: Genes at Work and attracted 352 participants. The Symposium provided an intense six-day synthesis of genetic mechanisms and genome & chromosome biology. Interviews with leading scientists captured during the Symposium provide a snapshot of the state of current research and are available on CSHL’s Leading Strand YouTube channel.

Our parallel 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.

Thanks to major federal, foundation and corporate support of our programs, we provided stipends to more than 750 graduate students and postdocs attending meetings and courses at Cold Spring Harbor in 2014, and we anticipate providing similar levels of support in 2015.

CSHL Meetings & Courses Program is committed to diversity for all our meetings & courses. See our policy here.
