President's Report

Fellow SIVB Members,

As I write this I am in the last two weeks of my presidency. I find it hard to believe that two years have flown by in a blink of the eye. It should be pointed out that those 2 years have provided some of the best memories of my professional life. SIVB is a strong organization; strong in leadership, strong financially, strong in its contributions to the field of in vitro sciences, and, most importantly, strong in the actions, intentions and practices of its membership. There could not be a greater honor in science than to be a representative of this society. Read More>

Michael Horn Endowment Fund

Michael Horn Endowment FundThe SIVB has recently initiated Endowment Funds in recognition of special individuals that have made a profound impact on our society.  The most recent fund is the Dr. Michael Horn Endowment Fund that is being introduced to the SIVB through the In Vitro Report and more will be shared about this fund at our annual meeting in Seattle.

As many of you already know, Mike Horn is a member of the SIVB since 1987 and he has been at our annual meetings as long as I can remember, including our meeting last year in Raleigh. Tricia, Mike’s wife, has also been at many of our SIVB meetings and you probably have seen her at past meetings by Mike’s side with her camera taking photos.   Last year, Mike was diagnosed with ALS and is now residing in Indiana with Tricia and his family.  Read More>
