Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the AMSMIC Annual Meeting, a conference dedicated to the challenges facing academic leaders in microbiology and immunology research.  AMSMIC is involved in many activities ranging from public policy initiatives to educator workshops, and we welcome conference participation by the leadership of microbiology/immunology units within schools of medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and public health.

The meeting will take place on January 20-21, 2022, on Zoom. Registration is free, but you must be current with your membership dues to participate. Link to Register

If you have attended an AMSMIC meeting previously, you already know the value of talking with your academic cohorts and sharing their strategies for leadership.  I hope you will be able to join us once again in the virtual format on Zoom.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions about AMSMIC or its annual meeting.

Theresa Koehler, PhD
AMSMIC President
