The leadership of the Central Society for Clinical and Translational Research (CSCTR) and the Midwestern Section of the American Federation for Medical Research (MWAFMR) invite you to participate in the Midwest Clinical & Translational Research Meeting, which has a rich annual tradition of providing a forum for young investigators, fellows, and associate/assistant professors to present their research to leaders in their fields. This is one of the few multi-specialty meetings with a broad focus where the attendees can learn about research techniques used in other medical specialties and apply those techniques to their own research.

Chair's Message

Anupam Kotwal, MBBS, Midwestern Section Chair- As Chair, I graciously welcome you to the Midwestern Region of AFMR (MWAFMR). Whether you are an early-career investigator seeking mentorship and opportunities, a seasoned researcher who can provide guidance to others, or anywhere in between, you will find the MWAFMR to be your research home. We have successfully organized our annual scientific meeting yearly which provides multiple opportunities for mentorship, career development, networking, and disseminating your valuable research.

Under the broader umbrella of AFMR, we are unflinching in our dedication towards fostering the development of research leaders and advancing scientific discovery. I encourage you to take a look at what AMFR membership can offer to support your career development in biomedical research, whether that be through our virtual education portal, career awards, social media promotion or publication in our journals Journal of Investigative Medicine (JIM) and Journal of Investigative Medicine-High Impact Case Reports. We also very much encourage involvement in our organization by serving as regional council members and future leadership, please inquire directly for more information.
