The American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR) is a multi-disciplinary organization with a rich history and an important mission, to "develop and mentor tomorrow's leaders in medical research". It is our goal to foster excellence in training and the successful development of medical investigators. The multi-disciplinary nature of the AFMR provides a unique forum and allows our members and junior faculty to tap into the professional network of colleagues in other academic medical centers. We also have a well-established platform to promote education as well as mentoring opportunities for medical students, trainees, and junior faculty through our regional meetings and collaborations with other key professional organizations. The AFMR also supports junior faculty to take on leadership roles, both regionally and nationally. Through these roles, members will have the opportunity to learn leadership skills, lead the planning of meetings and symposia, as well as interact with colleagues or leaders throughout the nation.
AFMR publications reflect our organizationís commitment to enhance the training and career development of the AFMR members. The Journal of Investigative Medicine (JIM) is an outstanding platform for our members to disseminate their research work. The Journal of Investigative Medicine High Impact Case Reports (JIM-HICR), an open access journal, is an innovative forum for trainees to publish their high impact clinical case reports.
It is my privilege and honor to serve as the President of the American Federation for Medical Research this year. Please join the AFMR to start your professional journey with us.
