2019 CMBE Conference

January 2 - 6, 2019

2019 Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Conference

Loews Coronado Bay Resort
Coronado "San Diego", CA


Conference Theme:
Engineering Cell and Tissue Complexity

The broad goal of this conference is to highlight challenges of engineering biological complexity across multiple length scales from macromolecules, to cells, and tissues.  Sessions will highlight cutting edge strategies to engieer (bio) functional complexity using both computational and experimental systems.  Topics will focus on ‘emergent’ or more complex functionality, engineering design, experimental challenges and needs, and the recent experimental and computational advances that are enabling bioengineers to design complex biological systems.

Program Topics:
  • Engineering cell microenvironment 
  • Modeling cellular networks 
  • Engineering disordered systems 
  • Morphogensis and organoids 
  • Organ on a chip 

Conference Highlights: 
  • Rising Star podium sessions for Principal Investigators 
  • Short talks for student/fellow abstracts 
  • Poster sessions for latest research
  • Shu Chien Achievement Award presentation
  • Mentoring Lunch
