The symposium included new elements unique to online meetings, such as 5-minute videos of poster presentations, MANA research introduction videos, virtual lab tour videos, and interaction in the chat space. And we presented 11 poster awards, including sponsor awards. The award winners included presenters from the UK and Spain, which was a unique expansion of the online conference.

Unfortunately, Prof. Winnik, a satellite PI at the University of Helsinki, passed away suddenly in February. She had been involved in MANA since 2011 as a satellite PI in the field of biotechnology. We presented the memorial video for her during the symposium. We would like to express our sincere condolences.
