About the symposium
Unnoticed by most, a quiet revolution is happening in the emerging field of psycho-immunology. Developments in this cross-discipline field have all the earmarks of a disruptive technology - their applications promise to be fast, effective, simple, inexpensive, and without costly technology, and work on both chronic and acute illnesses in many people. These new approaches are also effective in discovering the causes of diseases of unknown etiology.

4th Psychoimmunology and Psychobiology symposium Crete 2023 lunch
The intent of this free, informal symposium is to move the practice and science behind psycho-immunology and psychobiology forward. We invite researchers (and the public) who are passionate about this area to share data, treatment applications, techniques, models, and results; and to form new friendships and collaborations in an intimate and lively venue.

We’ll also be talking about the nature of breakthrough research, and the ways and difficulties in moving this new area of research into academia, mainstream medicine, and widespread use.

We have an information pdf for this symposium here for you and your colleagues. You can also read about our approach to psycho-immunology and psychobiology on this website, but we encourage anyone in this rapidly changing field to share their own viewpoints and experiences, whatever they may be.

Upcoming 2024 PsychoNeuroImmunology Research Society conference

PNIRS conference logo

PNIRS 2024 (24-27 June) Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The PsychoNeuroImmunology Research Society is an international organization for researchers in a number of scientific and medical disciplines including psychology, neurosciences, immunology, pharmacology, psychiatry, behavioral medicine, infectious diseases, endocrinology and rheumatology, who are interested in interactions between the nervous system and the immune system, and the relationship between behavior and health.

Our annual meeting brings together scientists working across the translational continuum to address critical issues in mental and physical health. We have an outstanding line-up of featured speakers and symposia examining the psychoneuroimmune processes underlying depression, anxiety, cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurodevelopmental disorders, cognition, and sleep. The meeting will also feature oral and poster sessions, discussion groups, and themed breaks. Meeting registration and abstract submissions are now open and we encourage you to register and submit your new PNI-relevant work.

Upcoming 2024 ISDP conference

ISDP conference banner 2024

ISDP Conference Oct 2-4, 2024 in Chicago USA

The International Society of Developmental Psychobiology (ISDP), is an international organization founded in 1968 for the purpose of encouraging research on the development of behavior in all organisms including man, with special attention to the effects of biological factors operating at any level of organization.

ISDP 2024, the 57th Annual Meeting of the ISDP, will bring together a multidisciplinary group of over 300 international researchers from all areas of developmental psychobiology ranging from clinical psychiatrists to ethologists to molecular biologists with a common interest in promoting translational research by emphasizing the integration of basic and clinical research approaches. Symposium sessions will cover cutting-edge interdisciplinary data and novel methods relevant to longitudinal and translational models of development with special emphasis on how environmental factors, such as early adversity, alter developmental trajectories.

Research promoting both human and animal models highlighting complementary or translational work across species will be presented in Oral and Poster Sessions over three days with ample opportunity for networking and scientific discussion. ISDP’s annual meeting provides a unique opportunity for advanced researchers, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduate students who share a common interest in developmental processes share their science in a scholarly and collegial atmosphere with no competing sessions which facilitates interactions across disciplines and levels of expertise.
