BASL Basic Science Retreat - Postponed

Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 Pandemic BASL has taken the difficult decision to postpone the Basic Science Retreat meeting until 2021. 

The ethos of the Basic Science Retreat is to provide an opportunity for networking and scientific discussion therefore we feel that a face to face meeting would be preferable to holding a digital meeting, which would likely be a condensed schedule.

As the situation with Covid-19 becomes clearer we will continue to review our plans and be better placed to make a decision about whether a face to face meeting will be possible sometime in March 2021.

Thank you for your continued support for BASL and further information will be added to the website once known. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact steve@basl.org.uk .
