Cold Spring Harbor Asia Program

Cold Spring Harbor Asia Conferences is our sister program based in Suzhou, China. Symposia, conferences and summer schools follow the Cold Spring Harbor tradition in showcasing merit-based scientific advances in an informal but intense atmosphere.

Thanks to major federal, foundation and corporate support of our programs, we provided stipends to more than 950 graduate students and postdocs attending meetings and courses at Cold Spring Harbor in 2018.
