After thoughtful deliberations, the leaders of the Experimental Biology host societies have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel Experimental Biology (EB) 2020 set to take place April 4–7 in San Diego, California. 

We thank you and the entire EB community for understanding the extreme difficulty of this decision and for your commitment to the success of this conference—from the thousands of attendees to the presenters, exhibitors and sponsors who shared their time, expertise, collaboration and leadership. We deeply appreciate your contributions to this community.

We’ll be posting more details about refunds, next steps and other updates on the main EB website and on our FAQ page.

APS’s annual meeting is held every spring in conjunction with the Experimental Biology (EB) meeting. Five societies (APS, AAA, ASBMB, ASIP and ASPET) jointly sponsor EB. The result is an interdisciplinary, biomedical and scientific meeting featuring a robust lineup plenary and award lectures, symposia, oral and poster sessions and career-building activities, plus an exhibitor showcase of scientific equipment, supplies and publications.
