INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH ON ALCOHOLISM

Project: Research project

Description

This application is submitted to help defray the costs of the Sixth
Congress of the International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism
(ISBRA) to be held June 21-26, 1992, in Bristol, UK. The First Congress of
ISBRA was held in Munich in 1982. Subsequent biannual congresses were in
Santa Fe, Helsinki, Kyoto, and Toronto. This will be the first ISBRA
congress in Europe in 10 years. Each previous congress has been partially
supported by NIAAA, and has been deemed a success. The original purpose of
ISBRA was, in part, to replace two older international meetings, the Gross
Symposium and the Symposium on Alcohol and Aldehyde Metabolizing Systems.
The ongoing purpose of the Congress is to facilitate the exchange of
information and ideas on alcohol-related research among investigators from
around the world, and to provide a forum where novel developments in basic
and clinical research can be rigorously scrutinized before a worldwide
scientific audience. The Bristol site allows relatively inexpensive access to the largest number
of potential participants. The local organizing committee, directed from
the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Bristol, will host
attendees from Western and Eastern European countries, Scandinavia,
Australia, North America, South America, and Japan. The funds will be used
exclusively for travel support, with some expenditures for administrative
purposes. Most of the budget will be spent to enable young investigators
and invited speakers to attend. This is designed to offer the opportunity
for young investigators to interact with senior researchers in a number of
related fields. The proceeding will be rapidly published, as has been the case with past
congresses. A number of innovations characterize the programming.
