Chair's Message

Alexander Philipovskiy, MD, PhD, Chair, Southern Section Council Welcome to the Southern Section of the American Federation of Medical Research (S-AFMR).

As a Chair of the Southern Section of the American Federation of Medical Research, I am pleased to welcome you and invite you to join our diverse family of researchers who devoted their career to promoting the mission of the AFMR - " develop and mentor tomorrow's leaders in medical research." My highest priority is to continue to promote AFMR's mission.

AFMR is a unique multidisciplinary society and offers one of the friendliest forums for medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty to present their work and get feedback from senior faculty members and colleagues. As an S-AFMR member, you will have the privilege of collaborating and networking with nationally and internationally recognized experts in multiple areas of basic and clinical research. I encourage you to submit your highest quality research and case reports to our Southern Regional Meeting 2022, as well as one of our internationally recognized and PubMed, Medline indexed journals - The Journal of Investigative Medicine and Journal of Investigative Medicine-High Impact Case Reports.

Our last meeting in February 2021 was held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though our interactions with meeting participants was unfortunately limited to the "virtual environment," the conference was a great success as demonstrated by the presentation of a wide array of scholarly research and invited speakers. You can now view the Southern Regional Meeting virtual presentations online.

AFMR members can also apply for AFMR national awards, Henry Christian and Best of Abstracts honors. Member benefits include discounted meeting registration and subscriptions to our journals.

You can also get involved by serving to our regional council or national committees.

We are looking forward to a successful year and to meeting new researchers and colleagues!
