Ciliate Logo

You are invited to the Ciliate Molecular Biology Conference which will be held July 13-17, 2016 in Florida at the Orlando World Center Marriott. The meeting brings together scientists with diverse research interests who are united by a common thread - the use of ciliated protozoa as model organisms.

The conference disseminates information on new research developments and advances using ciliates, new tools and resources available for ciliate research, and novel community-wide initiatives in undergraduate research and education. Interactions and discussions between scientists at all levels (undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and principal investigators) are fostered and encouraged.

You won't want to miss this meeting where you can build relationships that are key to future collaborations.

Join Us July 13-17 in Orlando, Florida
