ISAR ACTIONS TO ADDRESS RACISM
Over the past two days, ISAR joined #ShutDownSTEM #ShutDownAcademia #Strike4BlackLives, taking time to reflect on ways in which our Society could help eradicate anti-Black racism in academia and industry. As members of the global scientific community, we recognize that like other Institutions, ISAR is also a component of a system that has been complicit in racism and must therefore now strive to right these wrongs and empower marginalized voices. ISAR strongly believes that all voices, work, and opinions are equally important and ultimately the value of the contribution lies exclusively in the science. In order to advance the best science, it must be free from racial bias. ISAR commits to amplify black contributions to our scientific mission and will convene a committee to best determine how to operationalize that commitment. We are truly grateful for the dedication and contributions of all scientists to the field and we acknowledge that not all contributions have been equally recognized in the past.

ICAR2020 VIRTUAL MEETING UPDATE
Thank you for your patience as the International Society of Antiviral Board of Directors has been working to come up with an alternative to the originally planned ICAR2020 that was to take place in Seattle. It has been decided that the virtual meeting will be comprised of weekly webinars that feature invited speakers from the originally planned Seattle conference – internationally recognized experts who will address recent developments in all areas of antiviral drug discovery and development.
The webinars will take place this fall from September-December 2020 and will be free-of-charge to all ISAR members. So, to ensure you receive information about the fall webinars, make sure your membership is up to date and encourage your colleagues who are interested in participating in the webinars to join ISAR. ISAR membership details can be found at https://isaricar.wildapricot.org/Join-us.
Additional details on the timing and streaming of the webinars will be released as soon as they are available.
