Invitation to Attend

It is my pleasure to invite you to the AMGDB Annual Meeting, a conference dedicated to the challenges facing academic leaders in biochemistry research. We welcome conference participation by the leadership of biochemistry units within schools of medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and public health.

The meeting will take place on January 12-16, 2023, in Clearwater Beach, Florida at the Hyatt Resort. Like earlier AMGDB meetings, the conversations with colleagues at the beach 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 AMGDB 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 relaxed setting.

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