With the ongoing Coronavirus situation and increasing requirements for social distancing, the RSC BMCS Committee has taken the decision to cancel all solely or jointly arranged meetings up to and including GPCRs on 21st-23rd September 2020. It is hoped that planned 2020 meetings can take place on similar dates in 2021.

It is our policy that 100% refunds be given to registered delegates. We would, however, ask for your patience for these to be processed. Thank you for your understanding.
