Current Situation

As organizers of the Bernstein Conference, we take the current situation regarding COVID-19 seriously and monitor the developments thoroughly. We are aware of the vast impact this crisis has on regular lab life, scientific collaborations and also private lives. In order to keep scientific exchange alive and fruitful we are exploring possibilities on how to make the Bernstein Conference happen in case travel and contact restrictions remain until late summer. Please be assured that we will keep you updated.
