Dear colleagues,

Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Australian Biology of Ageing Conference, but we have decided that the best course of action at present is to cancel this meeting.

Given the projections around COVID-19, we are conscious of its likely impact on the health and well-being of our research community and broader community over the foreseeable future. Changes in government and university policies will also generate considerable uncertainty around travel, meetings and budgets. As such, we believe it is in the best interest of our speakers and delegates to cancel this event. While it was a difficult decision to make, it has been made with advice from the local health authorities.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you and please do not hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions.

Like many in our community, we are adjusting to this rapidly shifting landscape. We will be in touch with more information on when the next ABAC is likely to take place.

Thank you for your consideration and understanding.

Kind Regards

The ABAC Organising Committee

Prof. Andrea Maier

Dr. Kylie Quinn
