The CRT Genomics Industry day has been cancelled
In light of some recent developments we have decided to cancel the CRT Genomics Industry day. This is unfortunate and we are very disappointed to do so but given the facts that
- a number of companies have indicated that they are no longer able to attend the event due to company guidelines
- some of the event organisers are close contacts and will not be able to attend
- an increasing number of attendees have indicated that they are no longer comfortable attending such an event
- high covid numbers in the community and student population and concerns around the emerging new variant
we felt that the only sensible decision at this point was to cancel the event.
Networking and discussions were a key part of the event and these do not translate well into an online environment so we have decided to cancel rather than do an online event.
We apologise for such a late cancellation and the inconvenience caused but the rapid developments, heightened anxiety and increased safety concerns have left us with no choice.
We will aim to run the event next summer instead when hopefully the situation will be more stable – we sincerely hope that you will be able to join us then.
