Due to significant impacts on our event planning and outreach activities stemming from the recent partial government shutdown, the Annual User Meeting (AUM) that was scheduled for November 4-5, 2013 has been postponed. This event is always a great opportunity to share the latest science and foster stronger connections with members of the Molecular Foundry and NCEM User communities. Plans are being made to reschedule the AUM for the first half of 2014.
We understand that the events of the last few weeks have, and will continue to have, significant impacts far beyond our site. The Molecular Foundry highly values the beneficial relationship we have with our User communities – our multidisciplinary scientific culture and its impact is truly unique – and we will do our best to continue our support for the great research being done by Users at the Foundry. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time and look forward to an exciting Annual User Meeting in early 2014. New plans for the meeting will be made available as soon as they are finalized.
