The ASCB welcomes all "Working Press" to cover the largest annual meeting of research cell biologists in the world. To preview the meeting for journalists, the ASCB's Public Information Committee (PIC) will publish an embargoed press book, Cell Biology 2013, listing our "Novel & Newsworthy" Top Picks among the thousands of research papers and talks scheduled for presentation in New Orleans. Each year, the PIC's scientist-members "peer screen" more than 1,000 abstracts submitted for possible platform presentation and come up with Top Picks. The Novel & Newsworthy abstracts selected by the PIC are usually the top-breaking news stories at the meeting.
To get early access to Cell Biology 2013, sign up today for Working Press registration. You're under no obligation to show up in New Orleans. Come December, the onsite ASCB Newsroom can help you get your story, whether you're in town or working from afar.
Online Working Press registration will close shortly before the meeting. Walk-up Working Press registration, however, will be available in New Orleans at the ASCB Newsroom in Room 238 of the New Orleans Convention Center, beginning at 8:00 am on Saturday, December 14, 2013.
