Plant Cell Biology international

The annual US Plant Cell Dynamics meeting and the European Network for Plant Endomembrane Research are excited to announce a joint meeting for 2022: Plant Cell Biology International. The meeting will be held August 1st-5th at the Orthodox Academy of Crete and we anticipate offering a wide range of travel fellowships to help students and postdocs attend. PCBI will advance intellectual exchange between laboratories, enhance the cultural understanding of next generation of innovators between continents, promote new collaborations and help advance the field of plant cell biology.

Plant Cell Dynamics

Since 2012, US plant cell biologists have organized an annual "Plant Cell Dynamics" meeting, to discuss the latest advances in plant cell biology and learn new techniques and approaches. The meeting is usually held in the Midwest of the USA and after the Plant Cell Biology International meeting, Plant Cell Dynamics will return to Madison, WI.


The European Network for Plant Endomembrane Research meeting (ENPER) is the oldest international conference of the plant endomembrane research community. The meeting is held in a different European city each year with about 150 scientists from around the world meeting to discuss research on plant endomembrane functions.

Diversity and Inclusion

PCBI2022 aims to create an inclusive space for scientific exchange and collegiality regardless of participant background or personal identities. No form of harassment against any participant will be tolerated. To the extent possible, all laboratories that attend will be given time to present their research with students, postdocs or junior faculty giving talks. Our goal is that this format will ensure participation of a diverse group of attendees including women and underrepresented groups. Generous funding from NSF will help defray travel costs for ~ 40 students and postdocs from US-based labs making the meeting more affordable for students traveling across the Atlantic.
