President's Message

January 1, 2022

Dear SRI Colleagues,

Happy New Year from the SRI!

This past year continued to prove the vibrancy and resiliency of our Society as a whole. Looking back on all we have accomplished, I find more reasons to be proud of our SRI Community than ever before. My predecessor’s President’s Message in January 2021, shared a message of hope as vaccines were beginning to be distributed, and plans were being made for a hybrid meeting in Boston in July of 2021. He presciently predicted that July 2021 would produce a stellar hybrid meeting, bringing in hundreds of members and trainees, and for some giving a first taste of what it means to call SRI their scientific home.

As we enter into the New Year, I would like to echo that same message of hope as we plan our fully in-person meeting in Denver, CO in March 2022! We are preparing an amazing program with distinguished and highly sought-after speakers, great mini-symposia sessions, and various Lunch & Learn sessions. I am very excited not only to welcome everyone to SRI, my scientific home, but to my actual home, as I currently live and work in Denver.

As we move the SRI mission forward with our Annual Meeting, there is so much more that we would like to accomplish in the coming years to accelerate this mission! And as we approach the New Year and look back, there are many reasons for gratitude despite all the challenges we have and will continue to face:

--Thanks to those of you who supported the SRI Foundation in 2021 with a donation. We still have a way to go to reach our goal of $1 Million, but every single donation helps us get closer to dispersing the funds and making even more of a difference in the lives of our members.

-- Thanks to the SRI Grants Committee and those who volunteered as reviewers for the March of Dimes Basil O’Connor and Research Grants, the latter of which wrapped up just last month. This was a new venture for SRI and we greatly appreciate those able to review the important work of the applicants. You will be officially recognized during the Annual Meeting in Denver. 

--Thanks to the SRI Executive Leadership for their wisdom and creativity in managing the ups and downs of the global pandemic that has changed our lives over the past 2 years

--Thanks to the Program Committee for putting together a fantastic program while aiming at a constantly moving target

--Thanks to the invisible hand of SRI, our management team at EDI, who turn ideas into action
The SRI Community is and will remain great because of the dedication and service of so many.

With that, I wish you all the best for 2022 and hope to see you very soon.


Nanette Santoro, MD
SRI President, 2021-2022
