Due to the current and possible future restrictions with COVID-19 the BES has had to take the difficult decision to cancel the Regional Meeting 2020.  An online event will now replace the  onsite event during 20/21st November. We are very pleased to be able to bring you the speakers from the cancelled Spring Scientific Meeting: Dr Daniel Cerny, Dr Mo Fayad, Dr Gianluca Plotino and Dr Hagay Shemesh.  Plus you don’t even have to be available on the day – lectures will be available online until 28th November!
