Perspective from Dr. Claire Pomeroy on the Crisis in US Medical Research

Posted by the Public Relations Committee on 23 May, 2015

The Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, an APSA partner and supporter, is dedicated to supporting medical research and the people who make it possible. The Lasker Foundation sponsors an annual award lecture at the APSA Annual Meeting, delivered this year by Alfred Sommer, discoverer of the key role Vitamin A plays in early childhood health. On the website of Forbes Magazine, Dr. Claire Pomeroy, President of the Lasker Foundation, discusses the current crisis in medical research in the United States, including how promising young researchers (as Dr. Sommer was when he made his key discoveries) may be permanently dissuaded from making the next great leaps toward improving human health. Read her perspective to learn more about what is happening and what we can do to ensure the continued strength of US medical science.

Updates from the Annual Meeting

Posted by the Events Committee on 23 May, 2015

The 11th Annual Meeting was the best yet. Over 460 attendees joined ASCI and AAP members for a weekend of outstanding science, networking, and career development. Attendees heard from Nobel Laureates, Lasker Laureates, and many other distinguished speakers. For photos from the meeting, visit APSA's Facebook page (and tag yourself!) or APSA's Flickr.

One of the most memorable events of the meeting was the presentation of the Kober Medal to Francis Collins. If you missed the ceremony, you missed a special event that included a surprise guitar performance from the NIH Director himself. In collaboration with the AAP, APSA is very happy to announce that a recording of that ceremony is online! Visit APSA's YouTube to view the ceremony.
