Dear Member,

I have great pleasure in inviting you to join me in Glasgow for the Annual Meeting of the Association of Physicians of Great Britain & Ireland (APAM) to be held on 28 and 29 March 2019.

I am delighted to be leading the Meeting Programme which feature keynotes from distinguished colleagues such as Professor Dame Sally Davies who on day one of the Meeting will give The George Griffin Lecture, "Building and maintaining a global response to AMR" and Professor Sir Nilesh Samani who on day two will give the Osler Lecture, "New understanding of coronary artery disease through genomics"

On Thursday, 28 March, The Lord Provost will welcome all delegates to a Civic Reception at the iconic Glasgow City Chambers followed by the Annual Dinner. This year’s after dinner speaker is Professor Sir John Curtice, Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde and one of the UK's leading political experts whose timely lecture will be given on the eve of Brexit.

On Thursday 28 March, Professor Owen Sansom will give the plenary lecture "Using preclinical models of cancer to stratify new cancer treatments" and on Friday, 29 March, Professor Cathie Sudlow will give the plenary lecture, "UK Biobank: combining big data and open science to accelerate understanding of health and disease".

Building on the success of the Manchester meeting and the feedback AoP members provided, the structure of the Glasgow Meeting will include a third joint AMS/AoP symposium, "Multimorbidity - a global health research priority" with presentations be given by: Professor Melanie Davies, University of Leicester, "Multimorbidity Insights from the Diabetes Field"; Professor Bruce Guthrie, University of Dundee; Professor Frances Mair, University of Glasgow, "Providing Person Centred Care in Multimorbidity – The Importance of Treatment Burden and Risk Stratification" and Professor Paul Elliott, Imperial College London.

A workshop for Early Career Researchers nominated by AoP members will be held on the morning of day one. The three themes that the workshop will cover are:
• The future of clinician scientists
• Research integrity
• Funding strategies and opportunities

Each theme will be represented by three eminent panellists who will introduce the topic, followed by discussion. More information can be found on the Website.

I look forward to welcoming you to Glasgow next March.
Yours sincerely

Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak
President-elect
