The International Xenopus Conference is the premier forum for researchers using Xenopus for biomedical research. The conference will offer talks
on diverse topics, including cell cycle and cytoskeletal regulation, developmental biology and stem cells, immunology, genomics, and human
disease modeling. There will be many opportunities for interaction between students, postdocs, and faculty. Travel Awards are available for graduate students and postdocs.
Join your colleagues to:
Share your research as an oral or poster presentation.
Learn the latest scientific and technical advances in genomics and new methodologies.
Network with potential collaborators.
Visit exhibits and learn about new tools.
Seattle is the gateway to the Pacific Northwest. With a city skyline set against the snow-capped 14,000 foot Mount Rainier, this world-class metropolis
enjoys wild and beautiful natural surroundings. Three national parks lie within a two-hour drive: Mt. Rainier National Park, Olympic
National Park, and the North Cascades National Park.
Submit your abstract for review by May 3, 2018 to ensure it is programmed into the meeting. We are looking forward to your participation and seeing
you in Seattle, Washington.
