In light of the coronavirus pandemic, IHCC made the decision to hold the Third International Cohorts Summit, originally planned to take place in Santiago, Chile, as an abbreviated virtual meeting over the originally planned dates (May 4-5). The face-to-face portion of the meeting will likely be rescheduled for a later date. Please regularly check the event webpage as we will continue to post updates and conference information.
