Dr. Sara van Driest has recently accepted a position with All of Us at NIH. To avoid potential conflict of interest, she also resigned as the PGRN secretary. While we are sad to lose her, we look forward to working with her in her new capacity to advance pharmacogenomics research in pediatric populations.
After careful consideration, the PGRN council asked Dr. Erica Woodahl to fill the Secretary vacancy on the Board for the remainder of the year, and she has graciously agreed. Dr. Woodahl’s appointment will start immediately and this position will be open for election in mid 2023 when she will run as the incumbent.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Woodahl to the Board and also thanking Dr. van Driest for her service to PGRN.
