I am deeply honored to have been chosen to be the President of the Hellenic Bioscientific Association of the USA (HBA-USA) for 2020-2022. I know that I have big shoes to fill following the accomplished leadership of all my distinguished predecessors and I am fully committed to serve the mission of the Association in the best tradition of those who came before me.
It is my pleasure to introduce to you the Board of Directors who will be serving with me as President.
In the coming years, we intend to build upon our Associations’ progress in strengthening the connections and collaborations within the HBA-USA community since its foundation in 2005. To support this mission, we will continue our 6 main programs:
In our coming two-year term, the new Board aims to further advance the main programs of the Association, develop new ones and expand our networking events and activities. Additionally, we will continue working with our collaborators in academia and industry and pursue new partnerships with other associations, foundations, academic institutions, and private companies whose mission complements our own. We will continue to be a platform through which members of the Greek bioscientific community can find up to date information on opportunities for teaching, research, and collaboration in the field of biomedical sciences.
Additionally, I am eager to hear from you regarding other ways you think the HBA-USA can serve you, our members.
I look forward to a productive two year term working in the service of our common mission.
