SRI president

Diversity Drives Innovation. Not only this is the theme of SRI 2025 in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, March 25-29, 2024, but it is also the theme for all my SRI presidency (March 2024 -March 2025). Unfortunately, science and medicine still lack diversity- this is particularly true in the field of Reproductive Sciences. The pipeline is also alarmingly dry.


We at SRI are exploring ideas to help in addressing this challenge in collaboration with several other professional societies that share that concern and appreciate the importance of a diverse workforce in biomedical research. Please stay tuned for exciting updates about this in weeks and months to come as well as at SRI 2025. 


Also please feel free to contact me with ideas and suggestions in relation to this important subject at one of the following email addresses: or directly to


In other SRI news, July marks the opening of the nomination process, for future leadership positions. In just a couple of weeks, we will ask you to submit self or peer nominations, for the positions of President Nominee, Councilor, and Secretary-Treasurer. Watch for that email on July 10.


I would also encourage you to complete the form that recently went out to the membership, requesting that you share what companies you work with to obtain your research supplies, so that SRI can pursue those companies as exhibitors and supporters of SRI. As we look to expand our reach, we want to focus on companies that benefit you. If you did not receive the survey, please contact


Finally, SRI staff have been conducting site visits for future meeting locations, and I look forward to sharing those in the coming months.


As always, if you have news to share, please let us know at
