COVID19 UPDATE: We are planning for an in-person meeting in March 2021. However, we continue to monitor the evolution of the pandemic and how this might impact the Symposium. We will make a decision as to whether it is necessary to postpone or change the format of the Symposium before the registration process opens. This decision will be based on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations/guidelines from MSU, the State of Michigan, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To receive our updates, subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the page.
