The 35th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Surgical Research took place in Clearwater Beach, Florida on 25–27 September 2019. This meeting brings together the experimental surgery community to share the latest in research and surgical techniques and fosters professional development through education, training, and certification. The Academy is made up of a diverse group of technicians, veterinarians, medical doctors, and biomedical researchers from industry, academia, and complimentary disciplines supporting discovery and translational research. Over 165 participants from 30 different states and 6 countries were in attendance for the scientific program and social events. Four keynotes were presented together with breakout and poster session tracks. Participants were able to work on applied skills in practical courses that included hands-on surgical technique wet-labs complimented with dry-lab suture technique and surgical anesthesia, plus workshops and roundtables focused on improving study design and publication best practices. Attendees were able to enjoy sun and fun while connecting with potential mentors and collaborators during the social program. We present the highlights from this meeting in this report together with selected abstracts that illustrate the diverse scientific expertise of the Academy and promising new surgical research.
