Membership Information

ISPNE maintains a membership of active members throughout the world. Society membership is approximately evenly divided between basic research scientists holding the PhD or equivalent degree and clinical researchers holding the MD or equivalent degree; this division is reflected by the scientific content of both the Journal and the Annual Congress proceedings. In the years since the inception of the society, annual meetings have been held every year, except for 1989 and 2010.

Membership in the Society is open to those professionals meeting criteria as set forth in the bylaws.
