Chair-Elect's Message

Everardo-Cobos, MD, Chair-Elect, Western Section Council Welcome to the Western American Federation for Medical Research (WAFMR)! Our organization is working to foster the development of biomedical investigators of today and the future through a variety of ways. These include providing opportunities to report your research, opportunities for mentorship and collaborations, and promoting biomedical research on a national level. In particular, the AFMR journals, the Journal of Investigative Medicine (JIM) and its 'sister' journal JIM-High Impact Case Reports (JIM-HICR), provide an excellent venue for your research findings. Furthermore, our Western Medical Research Conference (WRMC) held annually in beautiful Carmel, California is a fabulous place to present your research and learn more about how to forge a career in research. Our 2019 meeting was a great success with one of the highest attendance rates on record, and a lot of terrific science presented. Start planning now to submit your research abstract this summer and attend the conference January 23-25, 2020! Also, if you would like to participate more in WAFMR through leadership at your institution or other ways, please contact the National Office.
