Due to the concern over the Zika virus, the Alfred P Sloan Foundation in concert with the organizers have decided to cancel the current Early Career Workshop on Microbiology of the Built Environment in Costa Rica. We are sorry to have to report this, but when it comes to health concerns we cannot be too careful.

We are currently re-organizing, and are considering either Chicago as originally planned, or New Orleans. But we will let everyone know soon.
