Message from the President
Dear EBPS members,
It is a great honour to become president of EBPS, and a pleasure to be doing so at a moment that the Society is thriving, with more fee-paying members than ever before. We have just enjoyed our biennial meeting in La Rochelle, a meeting with exciting scientific content in beautiful surroundings, which added to the pleasure of meeting colleagues and friends as part of the international community that the Society has created over the years. Behavioural Pharmacology is constantly reinventing itself and expanding into new fields of neuroscience, adding to our strengths. The need to expand to Human Behavioural Pharmacology and Neuroscience has also become apparent over the years and I hope that in the years to come this will be an important goal of our society.
We can now look forward to the next biennial meeting, which will be a joint meeting with our old friends in the European Brain and Behaviour Society, in Verona, Italy. From our side, this meeting will be hosted by Christian Chiamulera. In the interim there are two workshops in the coming year, Immune Influences on Brain & Behaviour: from Psychoneuroimmunology to Immunopsychiatry (Brighton, UK, organised by Neil Harrison), and Stress, PTSD & Psychiatric Disorders (Rehovot, Israel; organised by Yavin Shaham). These workshops will both bring to their attendees the latest advances in the respective field of research. I hope to see you at one or the other (or indeed, both!).
With best wishes,
