Spring 2024 SABI President's Letter

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

                             - Mark Twain

Dear SABI friends,

The Program Committee, led by Dr. Desiree Morgan, is hard at work putting together the best SABI meeting yet. In the meantime, what you have all been waiting for, the ‘Call for Abstracts’ for the annual meeting has gone out! It is time to finalize collecting and analyzing your data and summarizing your research project in the few but powerful sentences of a well-structured scientific abstract.

The scientific session, a.k.a. ‘The Cutting Edge’ plenary session, is the crown jewel of the annual meeting. Innovation, innovation, innovation… this is what SABI is about. And yes, your favorite large language model (ChatGPT, Bard, and alike) can indeed write the abstract. But don’t, please don’t.

For you experienced researchers, this is a great opportunity to help your junior colleagues and trainees develop this critical skill. Your mentorship, from conceptualizing and conducting the research to the preparation and submission of your scientific abstract is always greatly appreciated. By the way, we love educational submissions too!

Lastly, in case you missed it, SABI has a new Learning Management System (LMS) to purchase content from the 2023 annual meeting this past October. If you attended the meeting, the content is still available in the meeting app, but you can always spread the word about the LMS to friends and colleagues!

Ivan Pedrosa, MD
President, SABI 2023-2024
