COVID-19 Statement

Dear NAVBO Colleagues,

As part of North American Vascular Biology Organization’s mission to build a vibrant and supportive community, NAVBO hosts an annual meeting and a summer course (Vasculata). These meetings are essential opportunities to build connections. However, as a professional association, we are also committed to the health and safety of our members, and we are always vigilant about monitoring the local conditions where these events are held.

COVID-19 is a developing situation and we are monitoring it closely. As you know, it was necessary to postpone Vasculata. We are continuing to confidently plan Vascular Biology 2020, October 25-29 in Newport, RI. We currently have no plans to postpone or cancel this event. Read More

During this time, we are also offering a host of online content to help replace seminars, conference and other events that you may be missing.  We are hosting mini-symposia, webinars, live discussions on several topics, journal clubs and  Friday Happy Hour!  More details can be found here.
