The Southern Society for Clinical Investigation: Its Vim, Vigor and Vitality

      The Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI) has a long and proud tradition dating back to its inception in 1946 by founder and soon-thereafter-to-be-elected its first president Tinsley R. Harrison. The Society has continued to flourish under its sustained and able leadership, most recently provided by Jesse Roman and Charles (Bo) Sanders. Its comprehensive and productive scientific session, held annually in New orleans during February, is a testimony to its unwavering devotion to its tripartite mission: a dedication to the advancement of knowledge, information and ideas; a commitment to mentoring future generations of medical investigators while promoting careers in academic medicine; and fulfillment of its vision. The latter is based on the advancement of medical research by sponsoring an annual meeting, recognizing excellence in academic medicine, developing programs specifically to support young medical investigators and by publishing its official torchbearer The American Journal of the Medical Sciences, which for almost 2 centuries has been contributing to the dissemination of new knowledge, sharing truth as it is presently envisaged and inspiring the biomedical community.
