March 6, 2020 Update: Experimental Biology 2020 is canceled following escalating concerns regarding recent reports from WHO and the CDC on the coronavirus (COVID-19). Please see our Coronavirus Statement and FAQs for more information.


Complimentary press passes and virtual newsroom access are now available for the Experimental Biology (EB) 2020 meeting, to be held April 4–7 in San Diego. EB is the annual meeting of five scientific societies bringing together more than 12,000 scientists and 25 guest societies in one interdisciplinary community. 

EB offers an unparalleled opportunity to tap into cutting-edge science from across the U.S. and the world. Interact with leading scientists and discover the latest research advances in anatomy, biochemistry, molecular biology, investigative pathology, pharmacology and physiology. 

This year’s meeting will feature research announcements and discussions around topics such as:

  • Health effects of cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Approaches to reduce opioid abuse and overdose
  • Innovation in stem cells, tissue repair and regeneration
  • Mechanisms behind cancer, heart disease and neurological and immune disorders
