Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

As 2017 President of the Association, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to London for the 111th Annual meeting and to draw to your attention some of the particular highlights of the programme we have on offer.

The meeting will be held in the Darwin Lecture Theatre, University College, on Gower Street. In addition to an outstanding scientific programme, on Thursday morning, the George Griffin Lecture will be given by the recently appointed head of the Health Research Authority, Jonathan Montgomery addressing key issues for all clinical investigators in his talk Making the U.K. a great place to do research - opportunities and challenges”.  On Thursday evening there will be a chance to visit the newly-opened Francis Crick Institute with a drinks reception hosted there and a welcome from the Research Director, Sir Peter Ratcliffe. Following this, the annual dinner will be held at the Royal College of Physicians, with the after dinner address given by the College President, Professor Jane Dacre. On Friday afternoon, we will break new ground with the First joint Association of Physicians – Academy of Medical Sciences Symposium, chaired by myself and Sir Robert Lechler, with leading scientists discussing the state of the art in “Targeted Therapeutics”.

We do hope you will book early and join us for a celebration of all that is excellent in the Association.
