59th Annual Meeting of the Phytochemical Society of North America


After careful consideration of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the PSNA leadership and the organizers of the 2020 meeting have decided to postpone the meeting in Kelowna to 2021. An exact date for the meeting will be decided and widely announced once the pandemic is over. If you have already registered for the meeting you can either choose to get a full refund or to get credit for the 2021 meeting. It saddens us to have to make this decision, but we are convinced this is the best course of action at this time for the health of our communities. We look forward to see you in beautiful Kelowna in 2021!
