Timothy King, MD, PhD, Chair Friends, Colleagues and PSRC Members: Planning for the PSRC 63rd Annual Meeting is well underway and I look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham this coming May. Justin Sacks and I have been working diligently to make the 2018 program a robust scientific conference. For 2018, the structure of the meeting will be a bit different from past years.

The Plastic Surgery Research Council is the pre-eminent research organization in plastic surgery. Those in the field that value research and the role it plays in the specialty also have a special place in their hearts for the Plastic Surgery Research Council. PSRC's Baronio Fund was created years ago as a way to build a corpus of assets and reserves so that the Research Council may ensure the support of its mission to stimulate fundamental research in plastic surgery. Baronio funds can only be used each year for projects devoted to the improvement and access to research in the field, including grants and scholarships, and to the expansion, innovation, and progression of the Baronio mission. The greater the underlying magnitude of the Fund, greater is the PSRC's capacity to impact both the people that do research and the quality of the research being performed in plastic surgery...
