SDB President's Message: Why Meetings Matter
Several weeks on, I am still enjoying a feeling of post-meeting energization generated by participating in the Joint SDB-PASEDB Meeting in Vancouver. This was an outstanding meeting where a great deal of excellent science was presented, but it was largely the reconvening with like-minded colleagues that made me such a happy scientist. Here I want to share a few thoughts on why that is: why (in my opinion) meetings matter.
