Life Sciences Week

Cancelled: Missouri Life Sciences Week 2020

After careful consideration, and out of an abundance of caution relative to the rapidly evolving circumstances around the coronavirus and COVID-19, Missouri Life Sciences Week 2020 is being cancelled. The event was originally scheduled for April 13-17.  

Future communication via the event’s website and email will apprise potential participants of whether an alternative date may come in fall 2020.
