FAQs

Your safety and comfort are our priority. To provide maximum flexibility to match your needs, CHI provides this event as both an in-person and virtual experience. We feel the combination of these two experiences will bring about a truly unique event. This new conference norm will fuse the best of our traditional onsite events with the expanded benefits of a virtual conference. Bringing together the life sciences community is what CHI does, and we look forward to bringing our community together with this new offering.
