letter from the MCBIOS Society:

The next two weeks will be the most difficult and intense time to fight COVID-19. I wish you all safe and healthy! Life is getting tough and we are becoming tougher! Very soon, all the struggling will be behind us and we will work with our high spirit our society and its annual conference. Below are three important notes:

  1. Our annual conference has been tentatively postponed for one year to April 26-28, 2021 with the same venue and agenda as MCBIO2020. Specifically, we are still planning to have the joint conference with MAQC (which will be April 28-30) with April 28th for a joint poster session (Morning), workshops (afternoon) and reception (evening) that will be held in Embassy Suites.
  2. All the abstracts accepted by MCBIOS2020 will be considered for presenting at MCBIOS2021. You should have received the instruction from the conference chair regarding the options you may excise for your MCBIOS2020 abstract (e.g., “KEEP”, “UPDATE”, “DELETE”). If you have not received the instruction, please email to Dr. Steven Foley (Foley@fda.hhs.gov).
  3. You should have received the refund for your MCBIOS2020 registration fee. If you have not received it, please contact Dr. Mary Young at mqyang@ualr.edu.
