Fralin Biomedical Research Institute postpones public events in March

From: University Relations

Virginia Tech officials are currently working with several offices and departments that have events planned in the coming weeks. At this point, most events that are scheduled will continue as planned. However, check the university's COVID-19 site for changes to any planned events.

Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC in Roanoke has issued the following statement:

Dear Colleagues,

In an abundance of caution due to emerging concerns related to COVID-19 infection, the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC has decided to limit events for the remainder of March.  Thus, there will be no outside speaker seminars or public lectures/programs this month.

The public brain school, part of the Dana Foundation Brain Awareness Week will not be held during the week of March 16 but will be re-scheduled at a future date.

Future events remain as scheduled. Should the need exist to consider any further delays or cancellations we will share an update later in March.

We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may have caused. The University is sharing updates through the daily email each morning and has a website that we encourage everyone to follow to understand how we are managing this public health issue and read the current Virginia Tech recommended guidelines.

Thank you for your consideration.


Mike Friedlander
Virginia Tech Vice President for Health Sciences and Technology
Executive Director, Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
Senior Dean for Research, VTCSOM
