The International Society for Serotonin Research is an international association for biomedical scientists who are interested in any aspect of research on serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine). It was founded over 10 years ago and currently has a membership of around 450 persons worldwide.
Members receive a regular newsletter with information on scientific meetings, news of members and any other matters of interest to those working on serotonin.The Club sponsors biannual meetings, generally as satelites to the Congress of the International Union of Pharmacological Societies(IUPHAR) or the Federation of European Pharmacological Societies (EPHAR) . It also gives financial support to assist young scientists to attend these meetings. The Club also hosts annual lectures and dinners which are held in association with the Society for Neuroscience meeting and one of the meetings of the British Pharmacological Society (usually the Winter meeting).
