Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Growth Hormone Research Society and the IGF Society, we are honored to invite you to the 9th International Congress of the Growth Hormone Research and IGF Societies, to be held in Seattle, Washington, September 14 – 17, 2018.

The International Congress of the Growth Hormone Research & IGF Societies constitutes the most important scientific event in the area of Growth Hormone and IGF research. After the enormous success of the previous joint meetings of our societies, we trust that the Seattle Congress will continue our tradition of scientific excellence. The meeting will gather the most prestigious researchers and practitioners in the field and provide an excellent opportunity to learn from the experts and to share our most exciting data.

It would seem only fitting that a conference of this quality should also be held in a truly spectacular venue. Seattle is a beautiful modern city of museums, vibrant waterfront, restaurants and an active nightlife. The city is awake at all hours, with plenty to do and experience. Seattle is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

Please share this information with your friends, colleagues and members of your societies. We look forward to meeting you all in Seattle, September 2018!

Dr. Kevin Yuen and Dr. Charles Roberts
Co-Chairs, Local Organizing Committee
