ISN Sister Societies
About the ASN
The American Society for Neurochemistry's Missions:
- to advance and promote cellular and molecular neuroscience knowledge;
- to advance, promote, support, encourage and facilitate communication among investigators in neurochemistry and related neurosciences;
- to promote, support, encourage and facilitate the dissemination of information concerning neurochemical research through scientific meetings, seminars, publications and related activities;
- to promote, support and encourage the research of individual cellular and molecular neuroscientists and to engage in any and all other activities for the advancement of the science
of neurochemistry which may be deemed advisable;
- to insure that all of its activities remain open to the full participation of scholars of all backgrounds and nationalities.
About the APSN
The Asian Pacific Society for Neurochemistry was formed at the Sydney meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry in 1991 in order to promote neurochemistry in the Asian Pacific region.
It is modelled on the American and European regional neurochemistry societies, holding meetings every two years in the years when an ISN meeting is not held. Membership of the APSN is open to
individual scientists, scientific societies with a significant interest in neurochemistry and to corporations based in the Asian Pacific region. APSN aims to promote research in neurochemistry in particular
by dissemination of information, by arrangement of meetings and to encourage contact between its members. Individuals, societies and corporations interested in joining APSN are encouraged to contact
us directly. The Asian Pacific region holds special challenges given the extreme breadth of cultural, economic and scientific diversity in the region. Countries already involved with the APSN include Australia,
China - Beijing, China - Taipei, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. APSN hopes to include other countries in the Asian Pacific region, such as Fiji,
Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea, in the future. The emphasis on different aspects of neurochemistry, including biochemical, clinical, chemical, molecular biological and pharmaceutical
aspects, in the different countries promises to be one of the strengths of APSN.
