formerly Serotonin Club


The International Society for Serotonin Research (ISSR, formerly “The Serotonin Club”) is an international non-profit professional association for biomedical scientists who are interested in any aspect of research on serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine). Our society was founded in 1987 and currently has a membership of around 350 persons worldwide. 

The ISSR organizes an international meeting every two years with symposia and short talks covering all aspects of serotonin research.  We also provide financial support to assist young scientists to attend these meetings. In addition, the ISSR hosts annual networking mixers in association with the annual meetings of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS).

Our members receive newsletters twice a year that contain important information on our scientific meetings, members in the news, and any other matters of interest to those working in the field of serotonin.
