ACS Serotonin















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 in 1987 and currently has a membership of around 450 persons worldwide.

Members receive a newsletter twice a year with information on scientific meetings, news of members and any other matters of interest to those working on serotonin.

The ISSR sponsors biennual 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 ISSR also hosts annual mixers with guest speakers 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).

The 19th Meeting of the International Society for Serotonin Research
University College Cork, Ireland
July, 2018


Mark your calendars and plan to attend our next biennial meeting in Cork, Ireland, July 2018. Planning is now well underway by the local organizing committee chaired by Professor John Cryan.  Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland and was the European Capital of Culture in 2005. It is one of the oldest cities in Ireland and now is a modern, bustling port city playing host to the World's second largest natural harbour, after Sydney, Australia. The city's unique character derives from a combination of the people, topography, built fabric and its location on the River Lee at a point where it formed a number of waterways. Specific details will be forthcoming in the next ISSR newsletter, March 2017.
