1st International Meeting

10th Imaging The Cell

November 4-6, 2019

Lyon, France 

Following the great success of the 9th edition in Rennes (2017), the French Society for Cell Biology is pleased to announce the forthcoming 2019 10th edition of the “Imaging the Cell” congress in thebeautiful city of Lyon (November 4th to 6th). This meeting will cover the most recent conceptual and technological advances in cell imaging at both cellular and ultrastructural levels.

The morning sessions will be dedicated to talks given by prestigious national and international speakers and selected short talks. During afternoon, technical workshops will be setup in the PLATIM and CIQLE Imaging facility localed at ENS-Gerland and University Rockefeller.

Ideally located in the South East of France, Lyon, capital of the Rhône-Alpes region is 2 hours from Paris TGV and 1h40 from the Mediterranean coast. Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport is connected to 115 destinations and welcomes 8.5 million passengers each year.
