IBNS 29th Annual Meeting

  • IBNS 29th Annual Meeting


  • I am delighted for the opportunity to be in this position, ushering in our next meeting in Glasgow, Scotland, in June 2020! Given that I am Scottish born and raised, it is wonderful to be able to go back to Scotland with you all, this Society that has felt like family over the years. If you have never been to Scotland, jump at the chance – it is a beautiful, friendly country, go see the Highlands, probably the most beautiful part of the world that I have ever seen. With Edinburgh only a 45 min train ride from the location, you will get to see and experience many of the best parts of Scotland while basking in the excellence in science. Get your colleagues together and submit your symposia, travel award applications, and simply posters to come to this magical country.
    Incidentally, I have received questions on whether it may be felt to be cultural appropriation were any non-Scots to rent a kilt at any point (e.g., the banquet…). First of all, we Scots are happy to share our culture with the world. A kilt is one of the most comfortable things to wear; I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to try one (males, females, and all in-between) – when else will you get the chance? That point convinced many friends and family members at my partner and my wedding in 2014 (see picture), wherein numerous Americans, Mexicans, French, German, and others all took advantage of the opportunity. So, come to Scotland for the science, stay for the amazing whiskies and opportunities for fun!
    Stay tuned for hints and tips for things to see and do while in Scotland. Looking forward to seeing you there, so get those symposia proposals in by October 1st 2019!
