The 2019 CSMB Annual Conference will focus on research relevant for understanding the biological basis of cancer using a variety of model systems including model organisms, In vitro systems and computer modeling.


The program will be stimulating for both trainees and principal investigators, offering excellent opportunities for networking and exchanging on important issues in biomedical research: equity, diversity and inclusion; science and society; career planning. Parallel sessions will allow a large number or oral presentations, most of which will be selected from the submitted abstracts (including by trainees). Posters sessions will ensure that all participants can present their work.



The members of the CSMB benefit from a reduction of registration fees.  

The CSMB also offers several travel grants to students and postdocs members of the society, to defray part of the costs related to the participation in this conference. If you wish to become a member of the CSMB, please click here.
