In This Issue – 49.2 President’s Report 2015 Meeting Update Welcome to the 2015 Meeting Membership Matters Good Teaching Is…? Workshop Offered at 2015 Meeting Member News Journal Highlights New Members My first year as President has certainly been an exciting one. Our joint meeting in Savannah proved to be challenging and yet very successful. Our Tucson meeting is rapidly approaching and preparations for the scientific sessions, posters, and meeting events are probably consuming much of your time. This will be an exciting meeting. In addition, plans for the 2106 World Congress are already underway. I encourage you to join us and participate with the Program Committee to help the World Congress. I look forward to seeing each of you at these important meetings. It has been amazing to watch our Society respond to the evolution of science in the 21st century. Almost daily we hear of new scientific approaches and applications that have resulted from the basic and applied research of our current and former members. The rapidly growing field of stem cell biology is poised to provide great benefits for treating many human conditions, genetic or otherwise. Our society was instrumental in encouraging the development of the technology to facilitate the applications of stem cells. While some individuals in the stem cell field are well trained and knowledgeable of the details required for good stem cell practices,...
