“As you may know, the epidemic caused by COVID-19 has been raising a lot of questions and insecurities amongst the general population, in particular for biomedical students.
Over the past few days, multiple entities have established positions, recommending the cancellation of activities, events and travels. Therefore, and in line with what was recommended by the Portuguese Medical Association, APIFARMA (Portuguese Association of the Pharmaceutical Industry), University of Lisbon and Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon, the 11th AIMS Meeting Organizing Committee has no other option but to cancel the event that was going to take place between March 26th and 29th of 2020.
We will fully reimburse the congress fee for all participants.
We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience this decision may cause and hope you truly understand our extremely difficult decision. This is a matter of public health and we, as biomedical students, have the obligation to collaborate with national and international authorities in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.
We are certain that AIMS Meeting will be back soon, providing you with the wonderful experience our participants have experienced in the past. If you would like to know more about the next edition, keep following our social media.
We hope we can count on you to take part in the following edition, this is not a “goodbye”, but a “see you soon”.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are at your full disposal!”
