Invitation to Attend

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 21-26, 2025, at the Royalton Saint Lucia Resort in Cap Estate, St. Lucia.  Like earlier AMSMIC meetings, the conversations with colleagues at the social events are sometimes just as important as the programming in the conference room, and you will have plenty of time in both settings.

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.  If you have never attended, you are overdue for this important networking and career development opportunity, and we are ready to help.  I hope you will be able to join us in January for a stimulating meeting in this spectacular setting.

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