Event Symposium in Honor of Dr. Premysl Ponka

May 29, 2020
Symposium Postponed
Jewish General Hospital & McGill University
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Distinguished colleagues and friends,

As you know, the Lady Davis Institute/Jewish General Hospital and McGill University were scheduled to pay tribute to a beloved colleague and friend, Dr. Premysl Ponka, on May 29, 2020. However, due to rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the coronavirus/nCOVID-19 pandemic, this event is being postponed for the time being. With many universities imposing non-essential travel restrictions on members of their faculty, many of our gracious speakers traveling from out of town and abroad will inevitably request that we do so, until such time as a reasonable level of stability is restored.

Please be assured that it is our every intention to proceed with this commemorative event once the situation has calmed down. Dr. Ponka will be remembered and his career celebrated by our scientific community as soon as we can be certain that this can be done safely for all participants. We will contact you once a new date has been established.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kindest regards,

Koren K. Mann, Ph.D.
