Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the vigilant efforts by the Canadian Government and Province of British Columbia to control this disease by prohibiting public gatherings the RNA Society will be unable to hold our annual meeting in Vancouver at the end of May. Plans are underway to provide a lively platform for exchange of ideas and results, in keeping with our tradition. We will be asking both oral and poster presenters to prepare material appropriate for on-line presentation. Additional details will be provided over the coming weeks but be assured that the RNA Society is working diligently to adopt a platform for RNA 2020 that best facilitates both the presentation and accessibility of your science. Our full message about this change can be found here. March 20, 2020 letter from the RNA Society.
