April 2022

President’s Message – Jennifer Ahern

Hello SER friends! I am thrilled that our annual meeting is just around the corner in Chicago – June 14-17, 2022. I look forward to seeing all of you in person. The SER Executive Committee has been working hard to put together an interesting and thought-provoking program. We have some fantastic plenary speakers: Dr. Zeynep Tufekci who will share her perspectives on the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Michael Mina who will discuss SARS-CoV-2 testing, and Dr. Joseph L. Graves who will provide critical perspectives on race, ancestry, genetics and disease. We will be honoring an impressive set of SER award winners. It is not too late to register – if you are starting to feel some FOMO, join us. For those who are unable to attend in person due to health or other considerations, I look forward to catching up with you in the future. We apologize that we are unable to offer a hybrid option for this 2022 annual meeting – the logistics, costs, and hotel obligations unfortunately made this impossible. Read more

SPC President’s Message – John Pamplin II

It’s June, which means it’s time for my final entry into the live journal colloquially known as the SPC President’s address! That’s right, in a few short weeks, I will be relinquishing the reigns of the SPC and riding off into the sunset into the SPC Past President position (or as I like to call it, SPC President Emeritus). Fortunately, the SPC will be in great hands with Sharia Ahmed taking over the show. I’d like to thank Sharia and all the other members of the SPC board for all of their hard work this year. And though I will be remaining on the board in a different role, I’d like to give a special shout out to those members rotating off: Nedghie Adrien, Jen Mongiovi, Alvin Thomas, and Matt Mietchen. If you happen to come across any of them at the annual meeting, please join me in letting them know how much we appreciate them for all of their efforts these last two (challenging) years. Read more

Universities around the world have moved to online delivery of education in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

SER would like to serve as a resource page for students, faculty and practitioners to share and access FREE educational content, both live lectures and recorded or printed material.
