Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

The new season of scientific meetings at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has begun. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Meetings attract the top scientists from around the world to the north shore of Long Island (one hour from New York City) for intensive discussions of the latest discoveries in a broad range of the biological and biomedical sciences. Journalists, science writers, and editors are encouraged to attend Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Meetings, which provide unparalleled opportunities for reporting on and keeping current with a wide variety of topics. Researchers who attend the meetings--ranging from "rising stars" to Nobel laureates--frequently cite Cold Spring Harbor Meetings as among the most informative, influential, and enjoyable scientific conferences that one can attend.
