COVID-19: Update April 23, 2020

COVID-19 Update April 23, 2020

It is clear that for at least the next 12 - 18 months, if not longer, professional conferences will be different.  Aside from finding new ways to discuss and share learning, the most important thing we can do today is learn lessons that we will apply to the future, once we are able to meet together face-to-face again.

There is a new urgency to the conversations among the board of directors and staff about the need to provide engagement beyond the confines of the physical conference.  Face-to-face conferences spur discussions and exchanges in the hallways and over drinks, not only in the meeting rooms.  How do we continue those conversations year-round?  How do we engage those that can't participate in a place-based meeting?  These are the questions we hope to answer.

What is missing from this conversation, however, is you. How can CASSS help our members keep sharing their research and insights at a time when scientific exchange is both more difficult and more important to global health?  

What can CASSS do to help you right now? Whether it be virtual roundtables or a members only message board - or something entirely new.  What can we do to foster new ways of engaging with peers and sharing challenges and successes?

Please let us know in this short, 2-question survey here.  You must be logged in to access.  You may also leave comments below.

Stay current about the status each of our conferences by visiting their respective homepages. 

- AT Europe 2020, Lisbon, Portugal has been rescheduled to 3-6 November 2020
- HOS 2020 is cancelled. HOS 2021 will be held April 12 - 14, 2021
- Bioassays will now take place virtually April 27-30, 2020 
- CMC Strategy Forum Europe will be held virtually 11-13 May 2020
- Cell & Gene Therapy Products will also be virtual June 8-10, 2020
- CMC Latam 2020 is cancelled. Look for new dates in 2021


Each of the virtual meetings will still feature live speaker presentations and panel discussions, and will allow participants to engage with the speakers, panelists and each other.

We remain grateful for your support and flexibility during this difficult time.
