SRI leadership continues to look forward to and plan for the upcoming years with initiatives that highlight our continued dedication to ensure that our Society remains one of the leading organizations supporting women’s health research. Indeed, the value of SRI goes beyond its annual meeting and includes scientific exchange throughout the year, grant opportunities, mentor-in-the-cloud program, information dissemination and advocacy. We have a number of committees to support SRI’s vision and mission, including a newly formed committee on Global Outreach. A number of these committees will soon be accepting ad hoc members and it is an excellent way to get involved in SRI. Please visit our website for information on all our programs and committees.
As a scientific community, we are faced with many challenges and in one way or another, have all been affected by changing policies within our governments as well as our institutions. On April 22nd, we witnessed the March for Science that took place in over 500 cities around the world. SRI fully supports and engages in advocacy for science, and would like to reiterate how important it is for researchers in women’s health to have a voice.
With that being said, the SRI membership dues renewal process has started for 2017-2018. Being a member of a scientific community is so important, now more than ever. Your support is crucial to our continued success in translational research in women’s health.
