A message from the PVRI President

Dear friends and colleagues 

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, I would like to reach out to you on behalf of the PVRI. 

The health and safety of our members and staff is of paramount importance and we have therefore made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel or postpone two of our very successful annual events: 

  • The ATS-PVRI Get-together in Philadelphia, USA, scheduled for 19 May 2020.
  • Our 7th Annual Drug Discovery & Development Symposium on Pulmonary Hypertension, to be held in Boston, USA, on 29-30 June 2020. 

We will be in touch with those directly affected and refund all registration fees to those who have already registered. We thank you and the entire PVRI community for your understanding. 

At this time, it is more important than ever that we stay united as a community. Whilst our scientific and social meetings are important in our mission, it is our online and virtual presence that we should now take advantage of.

Like me, many of you will be under great pressure, working around the clock in hospitals and healthcare services, caring for the most vulnerable patients. You may want to reach out to a colleague for some advice or just a chat. Please take advantage of our online directory, or some of our other services, which are available to all fully paid PVRI members: 

  • Our staff are here to help! The PVRI office remains fully open. Provisions have been made for staff to work from home, should this be necessary, and we will continue to respond to all your enquiries. Please email admin@pvrinstitute.org 

I would personally like to thank all our esteemed members and colleagues for your continued support, which is invaluable during these uncertain times. 

With the very best wishes to all of you, your families and communities.
