President's Message
William M. Kuzon, Jr., M.D., Ph.D.

I also hope that you are all planning to attend our annual AAPS meeting, April 14-17, at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco. Paul Cederna, this year’s Program Chair, our Program Committee, our dedicated staff at PRRI, and many, many member volunteers have prepared what I believe will be a spectacular meeting for all of us.
