Dear Colleagues and Members of the BBB Community, Dear Friends,
Sadly, as we all know, the COVID-19 Coronavirus is still spreading in Italy, all over Europe and to Countries all over the World. The pandemic is having a heavy global impact and, although the data referred to the end of April indicate a reduced incidence of the disease in many areas, including Italy, and although we all hope that these are signs for a complete decline of the virus very soon, at the moment and for the next months, in agreement with the World Health Organization recommendations and with the Italian Public Health authority guidelines, conferences and large gatherings need to be cancelled.
Although we all hope that by the end of September the coronavirus pandemic will be under control and largely conquered, caution is an absolute obligation because the safety of all people is the highest priority. Accordingly, the decision has been taken to postpone the 23rd International Symposium on Signal Transduction at the BBB until further notice.
We will meet again soon, in better times!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee
