SBBM cancels its 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting

After meditating extensively on the current situation generated by the PANVID-19, we have decided with great regret to cancel the 2020 meeting of the Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Chile, which was scheduled for October 6-9 this year.
The low certainty of when normal activities, including travel, or the possibility of meeting massively, in addition to the difficulties generated by the delay in research activities in laboratories, could be resumed led us to consider that this was the best option.
This decision is in line with what is happening with different international scientific meetings scheduled for this 2020, and also coincides with the position that various scientific societies in our country are taking.
We know that the annual meeting is an event expected by our partners and that it allows the rich interaction between colleagues and students from different parts of the country. However, circumstances call to be prudent, and to make this difficult determination.
As the scenarios associated with the pandemic become clearer, we look forward to updating them on a potential 1-day online meeting in October to honor the tradition of bringing together (albeit virtually) around the science that convenes us.

Without another particular, and wishing for each of you, he bids farewell cordially
