COVID-19 Statement

The Society for Cryobiology is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and its potential impact on the Annual Meeting. The health and safety of our attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and staff remains our primary concern.

The Society for Cryobiology is continuing to finalize the scientific program and logistics to hold CRYO2020 as scheduled. However, if the current global situation remains as it is currently, or worsens, then we must accept recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and other organizations to postpone or cancel the meeting.

Due to this ongoing uncertainty the Society for Cryobiology has suspended registration for the time being. At this time we also do not recommend booking flights or making any other travel arrangements.

A final decision regarding whether the meeting will go ahead will be made by late-April. Please check this statement at that time.
