As currently planned, the program will have eight sessions devoted to oral presentations, together with two poster sessions for presentations which cannot be accommodated in the formal sessions. Selection of talks for the oral sessions will be made by the organizers in conjunction with the session chairpersons, from the submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site (below) as soon as decisions have been made. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor at the end of August.

We anticipate this conference is supported in part by funds provided by the Cold Spring Harbor Corporate Sponsor Program

Additional support thanks to Avanti Polar Lipids and HistoWiz   HistoWiz - Accelerating Histopathology
