Message from the Co-chairs

April 15, 2020

Dear Members of the Immune Modulation and Engineering community,

Due to the relevance of the topic of Immune Modulation and Engineering to the global crisis, we are committed to hold the Symposium date as planned on November 11-13, 2020. We recognize the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the uncertain timeframe of social distancing and travel barriers. As we hope conditions will continue to improve in time for November, we are also taking the necessary steps to hold the symposium virtually. To receive important updates for your hotel and travel bookings please use the email signup form.
