Winter Eicosanoid 2020 Update

After careful consideration and adhering to all necessary guidelines regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic, the WEC Organizers have decidednot to move forward with the 18th International Winter Eicosanoid Conference on August 16-18, 2020 in Baltimore, Maryland.

At this time, we are considering two options: 1) to hold a virtual downsized meeting in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021; and/or 2) plan the next meeting in Baltimore in Fall 2021. As we are greatly concerned with the health and safety of all participants and attendees, we will continue reviewing guidelines and keep you informed of any updates. If you have any comments, please contact Gail at

We know that the Winter Eicosanoid Conference is an important event for interaction and the exchange of ideas for those in the area of eicosanoid research and we look forward to future meetings.
