The Elsevier conference team take the safety and well-being of their entire delegation and community very seriously. We will therefore be implementing a number of enhanced hygiene and cleaning measures, in collaboration with our conference venues, when our events take place. We will also of course, be following appropriate social distancing measures, to keep everyone safe throughout the conference.
This is coupled with our promise to refund your registration fee, with no penalty, should you wish to cancel during the uncertainty of the outbreak.

Evolving concepts of the cell, biology's fundamental unit

The ability to make precise measurements of single cells at unprecedented scale and resolution, under demanding conditions, is changing the way we ask and answer biological questions. How are these technological advances changing our conceptual understanding of how biology works? How are they expanding our knowledge of what biology can do? How can we harness its potential in engineering and medicine?

We hope you can join us in San Francisco, where we will bring together disciplines as diverse as evolutionary biology, biophysics, neuroscience, and quantitative cell biology to develop insight into these questions.

Topics include:

  • Harnessing the potential of single cells in engineering, biotechnology, and medicine
  • Diversity in cellular behavior, form, and function
  • Dynamics of cell populations in space and time
  • Understanding cell physiology in health and disease
