New year’s note from the GMP’s president

Dear GMP members,
The GMP Committee sends you our best wishes for the New Year. May 2018 bring peace and happiness together with success in your personal and professional projects. 2018 will be a special year for the GMP because it will give us the opportunity to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our association during the symposium scheduled in October.
In 2017, the symposium was a great success, with over 100 participants, and presentations about various topics demonstrating the diverse areas of our expertise, the GMP Committee is really grateful for your participation : our special thanks to all the speakers and of course to our sponsors for their support, which allowed us to organize this symposium.

For 2018, the venue and dates of our next symposium have already been defined: it will take place in a prestigious location, the Institut Pasteur in Paris from 17th to 19th of October 2018. A Scientific Committee has been created which will work hard to create an attractive scientific program with surprises worthy of the event.

One objective of the GMP Committee is to increasingly involve you in the life of our association, as such we have decided to initiate the publication of a “newsletter” to reinforce our interaction with you and keep you regularly informed of our initiatives, activities as well as the implementation of the annual symposium. In addition, if you want to share your proposals and ideas with us, do not hesitate to post them via our communication channel

In 2018, we plan to implement other scientific interactions modes to continue our discussions and thinking on specific topics at other times of the year, for example through webinars.

Finally, the GMP Committee will also have an in depth review of both the format and content of our annual symposiums for 2019 and 2020. This could include the potential participation of other scientific associations. We will keep you informed of all these activities during the year.

Do not forget to save the dates of our Annual Symposium on October 17 to 19th 2018 (see at the bottom of page 2). As you know, this will be the 30th anniversary of the GMP and we are hoping that each of you will attend.

Best wishes for the New Year.

Marc Trellu, president GMP.
