The format of the meeting will include seven oral sessions and two poster sessions. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts and posters. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited. The abstracts should focus on new and unpublished data. The organizers will select abstracts for oral or poster presentations.


We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend and we have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Val Pakaluk (pakaluk@cshl.edu) stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.


For those planning to attend the workshop, add two extra night housing and please email Val Pakaluk (pakaluk@cshl.edu).
