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.
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.
There are no fees for attending this symposium. To register, fill out this Zoom registration form before the conference starts.
You can also attend in person. There is no fee, but you will have to pay for your own food and accommodations.
Several days will be only for therapists trained by the Institute - they'll be getting technique updates and practice with the latest tools.

PNIRS 2023 (12-15 June) Boulder, Colorado USA
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, themed breaks, and Covid-19 relevant programming. Meeting registration and abstract submissions are now open and we encourage you to register and submit your new PNI-relevant work. www.pnirs.org/2023-annual-meeting
