As we face the current COVID-19 challenge and after thoughtful deliberations with our stakeholders, the Oregon National Primate Research Center and OHSU have decided to reschedule the in-person 2020 Annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS in Portland, Oregon. The Symposium was previously scheduled for September 22-25, 2020. The new dates for the Symposium are September 21-24, 2021. It will still be in Portland, and the venue will be The Nines Hotel.
The annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS brings together more than 200 of the world’s foremost researchers to share their findings and ideas for preventing the spread of AIDS. The unprecedented near-halt of biomedical research around the globe has necessitated that most, if not all, in-person conferences be postponed until 2021. Because we value the face-to-face mentoring opportunities that this Symposium features, and because we are linking it with an Early Stage Investigator Conference, we decided jointly with our partners the HIV Vaccine Trials Network that postponing was the best option for these linked conferences.
We anticipate that many of you will be ramping up your research and operations as the shelter in place orders are lifted this summer. By holding the symposium in 2021, it is our hope that laboratories will have more opportunity to generate insightful research progress for future symposium abstracts and presentations. In recognition of the importance of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers plan to include progress in SARS-CoV-2 nonhuman primate models as part of this newly configured Symposium.
