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 have also decided to move Vascular Biology 2020 to a virtual platform.  All speakers have agreed to participate and we will offer the same content as the face-to-face meeting.  See the meeting description, register (at a reduced rate) and submit an abstract.
