Barbara Murray“One of my favorite parts is running into people I know, and getting to see former trainees and colleagues that I haven’t seen in years. That’s probably the most fun part—not the most scientific part, but the most fun part.” -- Barbara E. Murray, MD, FIDSA 
“The meet-the-professor sessions are always a lot of fun. It always surprises me how many people get up to attend a 7 o’clock session, usually in a smaller and more intimate setting than might be the case in a larger symposium.” -- Daniel Kuritzkes, MD, FIDSA Dan Kuritzkes
 David Relman“One of the great things about this field is the fact that so much is emerging, unanticipated, and a surprise every year. I just hope that we can continue to be flexible enough and agile enough to embrace and address problems as they arise in real time.” -- David A. Relman, MD, FIDSA
“I always love the named lectures. It’s always fun to see how leaders in the field will choose to talk about their lives… people who have been working decades on a subject, and how they’ll put their work in the context of others’.” -- Kathryn M. Edwards, MD, FIDSA Kathryn Edwards
 Henry Masur“One of the big events for me as a young researcher was to go to presentations by famous people like Jack Remington and really get a chance to ask them questions. They were actually wonderful about talking about their data. In infectious disease, there are a lot of friendly, helpful people who want to advance the field. And while they’d like to publish before you do, they’re eager to help you get started.” -- Henry Masur, MD, FIDSA
“The interactive case discussions are my favorite part. We discuss complicated cases. The audience gets to participate. And you get to hear three or four experts comment on what they think is the right thing to do for that patient. … There’s not always one right answer.” -- Kimberly Smith, MD, MPH Kimberly Smith
