Dear Midwest Chapter (MRC) Members and Friends,
I hope you had a great summer and a wonderful start into the fall. Before jumping into our planning in 2017–2018, I’d like to give you an update on our 2017 Spring meeting.
Moving into 2017–2018, our first major event is our 2017 fall meeting and our career outreach event. The meeting will take place on Friday, November 3 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm at the AbbVie Campus in North Chicago, Illinois. The topic will focus on the impact of early-life environmental toxicant exposure to disease development in adulthood. Students and postdocs will also have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the drug discovery and development process. A tour of AbbVie preclinical laboratories will take place from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon on Nov 3. The event will be open to 30 students and postdocs on a first-come-first-serve basis. The detailed information, including meeting registration, directions, and scientific program can be found in the Meetings and the Newsletter sections on this website. You can also click here for Online Registration to the meeting and the tour.
On behalf of the executive committee, I would like to thank you for the continued support of our regional chapter. I hope to see you all at our fall meeting in November!
President, Midwest Reginal Chapter
