The importance of being an active member of INF

Our current membership includes neuroendocrinologists from over 30 nations around the world. In 1972, the International Society of Neuroendocrinology (now the INF) was founded to pursue the following aims jointly:

  • promote the development and advance of basic and clinical neuroendocrinology
  • disseminate scientific information in neuroendocrinology and related fields
  • facilitate the interchange of ideas among scientists of all nations
  • attract to this discipline the enthusiasm of young and talented investigators


As a member you are entitled to:

  • Reduced registration fee to attend the International Congress of Neuroendocrinology (held every four years).
  • Students have the opportunity to apply for a travel grant to attend this meeting.
  • Reduced subscription rate to the journals Neuroendocrinology, Journal of Neuroendocrinology, Frontiers in Neuroendocrinology, and Stress.
  • Option to advertise training or faculty positions available in your laboratory, or to request a position for yourself.
