Chairman of KCR 2020
Dear colleagues and friends worldwide,
We had originally intended to hold the KCR 2020 Meeting in May, but due to recent developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone it to October.
Over the years, we have embraced and overcome numerous challenges as they come. COVID-19 is no different; we cannot put treating the patients nor searching for a cure on hold. While it would be best if we could meet and share in person, the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing our hands. We, however, believe we can make something of these trying times.
This is why we have decided to hold the KCR 2020 Meeting virtually, in order to contribute to achieving the Next Normal. Our Organizing & Scientific Committee Team has been hard at work to ensure the virtual meeting falls nothing short of the conference we've all come to expect. We ask for your understanding and support, so that this new form of gathering can successfully become the new standard.
We hope KCR 2020 provides you with a refreshing and informative conference experience.
Gwan Gyu Song
