We encourage abstract submission for posters. The poster session will provide a unique opportunity for students and postdocs to highlight emerging science on organelle structure and function, as well as aspects of organelle biology that affect human health and pathology.
Attendees are welcome to present posters. Selected abstracts will be chosen for authors to feature their work in a short (3 min) oral presentation to highlight the accompanying posters. The program will allow ample opportunity throughout the day for networking.
