Important Notice
November 2023

As some of you know, foundation staff have been dealing with a serious illness for the better part of a year. This has disrupted our program and slowed our review of abstracts and proposals. We appreciate your patience.

Fortunately, our staff has all but fully recovered and we hope to be caught up and back on schedule soon. Thanks again for your understanding,

Don't hesitate to call if you have questions. Stay well.
