*Beware of Hotel Scams

Reserving discounted accommodations as an attendee of the Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mesa should be done exclusively through this website. If you are contacted by a housing service claiming to be affiliated with the meeting, please do not book through them as many are scams and target conference attendees who unwittingly provide them with payment information. Please make sure you book your accommodations directly through this website or by contacting the Federal Conference reservations team at 1-866-311-8809 ext 3 to guarantee that your rooms will be there when you arrive and at the lowest discounted rate available.

  • With hundreds of biotech and pharma companies sitting among dozens of scientific research institutes, La Jolla's Torrey Pines Mesa is the obvious location to host this conference. Further, having the Estancia Hotel, the Salk Institute and the Sanford Consortium right next door to each other, has not only allowed this event to grow, but also provides easy, walking access between venues for meeting attendees."
