2018 Ciliate Molecular Biology Conference July 17 - July 22, 2018 | Washington, DC
The Ciliate Molecular Biology Conference will be held July 17-22, 2018 in Washington, DC at American University. The conference features research
advances, new tools and resources, and new community-wide initiatives in undergraduate research and education. We are pleased to announce that
Boris Striepen, University of Pennsylvania, will present the Keynote Address.
The preliminary schedule fosters and encourages interactions and discussions between scientists at all levels
(undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and principal investigators).
