ASGCT Virtual: We are thoroughly enjoying the “live” annual meeting of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT).

Unlike other virtual meetings that have recorded presentations, ASGCT are running a live format, with presenters giving their talks in real-time from wherever in the world they may be. By and large this has worked well, and it definitely felt as though you were at the meeting.

We are also enjoying the ePoster hall, and in particular, the short audio tour that many presenters have made to take you through their poster. Obviously, it’s not a substitute for in-person contact, but who would want to be in a crowded poster hall or meeting room in these uncertain times with the potential for the coronavirus lurking about?

As Covid–19 continues to exert its impact on the cancer conference schedule, the good news is that it isn’t a total wrecking ball effect as organisations turn to virtual meetings to enable researchers to share their work.

Some of the events we have ‘attended’ this year have been prerecorded in advance, while others have taken the form of live events. Having listened to both, I can say they have advantages and disadvantages either way.

To me, it doesn’t really matter if you are flexible and appreciate the effort the scientists are making to show their wares.

This week it’s the turn of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) to be in the spotlight with a truly ‘live’ meeting.

In the latest post, we focus on some key Gems from the Poster Halls…
