The 1st Annual Pittsburgh Cell Biology Conference

(Formerly "Local Traffic")

May 2nd 2024


About the conference

PittCell is a joint venture between Pitt and CMU, featuring talks from local faculty and trainees working on cell biology and related fields. Historically, the meeting was called 'Local Traffic', reflective of the density of researchers in Western PA who were interested in membrane trafficking. Over time, the conference has attracted a broader range of topics and thus we have rebranded this meeting to be called PittCell. 

This will be the twenty-third iteration of this annual meeting and will be held Thursday, May 2, 2024 at the Frick Fine Arts center in Pittsburgh. The conference will feature talks from established and new faculty members, and select trainee abstracts. The final program and abstract book will be live by mid-April. 

The event will include a vendor show (fingers crossed for free swag!), and a poster session in the cloisters. If you are a vendor interested in sponsoring the meeting, please get in touch with the organizers


Registration and abstract submission closes April 22nd 2024!
