Soka University is hosting the 2020 American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) Regional Meeting, Teaching Tomorrow’s Scientists, on May 30. Teaching-intensive life scientists will gather for the day-long conference to network, participate in workshops, and present in a poster session. Plenaries will be delivered by Sara Brownell of Arizona State University and Rachel Kennison of UCLA. 

Submissions of abstracts for the afternoon workshop and poster sessions are now open. There is no submission fee, but they must be entered before the deadlines: March 4 (workshop session) and April 20 (poster session). The last day to register for the meeting is May 24.  Admission is $40 for ASCB members and $50 for nonmembers, and covers a coffee break, lunch, dinner, and the mixer. 

The meeting organizers include Susan Walsh, Soka associate professor of molecular/cellular biology and director of the Life Sciences concentration; Andrea Nicholas, associate teaching professor in neurobiology and behavior at UC Irvine; and Joel Abraham, associate professor of biological science at Cal State Fullerton.
