In 2020, to limit spread of the COVID-19 virus, NINR’s Summer Genetics Institute (SGI) was cancelled and the SGI 20th Anniversary Symposium was held virtually. To align with current NIH guidance on travel and meetings, NINR has decided to cancel its SGI for 2021 as well. All NIH meetings and symposia at NIH facilities or organized by NIH that are not mission critical have been converted to virtual meetings, postponed, or cancelled.
Even though SGI will not happen in 2021, NINR will continue to support a robust series of offerings that focus on the exciting science the National Institute of Nursing Research supports and conducts. Additional information on these offerings can be found on NINR’s website.
