Dear NEBEC Participants,

Penn State health and safety officials are closely monitoring a global outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus. At this time, there are no known cases of COVID-19 – the disease caused by this new coronavirus -- at Penn State.

However, as a precautionary measure, the 46th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, scheduled for March 26-28, 2020, has been cancelled.

The health and well-being of our community and conference participants is driving our decision-making.

Registered participants and sponsors will receive a full refund of your registration fee; however, the University cannot be held responsible for any related costs, including cancellation fees assessed by airlines or travel agencies.

Participants are encouraged to cancel any lodging arrangements to avoid associated fees.

Future event dates for the annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference will be reviewed by the Northeast region BME chairs and updates will be posted on this web page:
