Dear CEEHRC Members,
In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is with regret that we have decided to postpone the 2020 CEEHRC Annual General Meeting, which was originally scheduled to take place in Estérel, Québec from October 18-21, 2020.
The safety and health of all those attending, as well as delivering the high-quality content in a manner consistent with what attendees have come to expect, were our top priorities. The pandemic has made it difficult to realize these considerations, and we do not feel it would be responsible on our part to hold the in-person conference this fall, as previously planned.
We are pleased to announce that the Annual General Meeting will now be rescheduled for November 2-5, 2021 in Estérel, Québec. We will use this pause as an opportunity to think about new ideas and features to improve future meetings. The CEEHRC Network will continue to support the Canadian epigenetics research community during this time to stay connected and provide other avenues to share their research. We will be starting a monthly seminar series this summer with Dr. Marco Gallo of the University of Calgary as our inaugural speaker. Additional details will be circulated on this new seminar series in the coming weeks.
We will keep you informed about any updates, and sincerely hope you, your family, friends and colleagues are keeping well in these challenging times.
