Update NBCNS Research meeting, Åre and COVID-19, March 11, 2020

The NCBNS steering group has made the difficult decision, after careful consideration and evaluation of currently available information related to the novel coronavirus/COVID-19, to cancel the NBCNS Research Meeting 2020 scheduled for March 16-18, 2020.

Since the hotel bookings at Holiday Club cannot be cancelled at this point, you are free to stay in the rooms and use the meeting venues even though the meeting is off. Barncancerfonden does not oppose to use the facilities for scientific meetings, although we should keep all current recommendations in mind. Keep updated and be careful!

The whole situation is very disappointing but we hope you sympathize that we put safety first. Our aim is to reschedule the meeting for later this year or next year, whenever possible and suitable. Further information will follow.

We are pleased to invite you to the 12th NBCNS research meeting

The meeting will be held Monday, March 16th to Wednesday, March 18th 2020 and take place in Åre at the Holiday Club.

Confirmed speakers are Michelle L. Monje (Stanford University), Olaf Witt (DKFZ), Gudrun Schleiermacher (Institut Curie), Mariella G. Filbin (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), David Gisselsson Nord (Lund University) and Ruth Palmer (University of Gothenburg).
