Letter from the President
Dear friends and members of ISPNE,
| have the pleasure of informing you on the status of the upcoming 43rd annual ISPNE conference in Leiden, The Netherlands on August 20-22 'Stress, Rhythm and Blues, balancing the hormone actions on brain, behaviour and cognition over the life span'! This year the conference organisation is in the hands of an excellent team from the Netherlands, chaired by dr Eric Vermetten and the Leiden Boerhaave Conference Service. The meeting is hosted by the Leiden University Medical Centre in a beautifully new building that is completely reserved for our meeting.
The ISPNE meeting invites participants to present the results of their psychoneuroendocrinology-related research and clinical projects, either in symposium, workshop, oral, or poster presentation sessions. The sessions will be interspersed with guest lectures by prominent international speakers, presenting their state-of-the-art findings. In this nice environment participants can establish contacts with international colleagues and enjoy the city of Leiden and its medieval history during a range of social events and excursions. We do remember the successful 2007 conference in Leiden and are excited to have our meeting in the Netherlands again.
Leiden has earned the name of 'Key to Discovery' and I hope you will find new discoveries in its charm, elegance and friendliness. It has an impressive past in which Rembrandt has an important place. The conference organizers have used his paintings in the announcement of the conference theme. This is a beautiful and artistic illustration of the three key themes that are captivated in ‘Stress, rhythm and blues’. This promises to be an event you do not want to miss!
This website will be used to keep you updated about news and important dates. Keep coming back to find the latest updates.
We look forward to seeing you!
