"We are really looking forward to this year's ARDD meeting. We are extremely humbled, honored and excited that so many amazing speakers will join our meeting. Our plan was to move to New York City where Columbia gracefully offered to host our meeting. However, due to COVID-19 we are moving online. This is actually really exciting because it means many more people will be able to attend our meeting! This year we have also decided to increase our focus on young scientists who will be the future of our field and we have therefore opened up a large amount of speaker slots for these rising stars. More news to come! In all, this promises to be a tremendously exciting event."
