About The Society


The society holds an annual meeting, Research Perspectives in PsychoNeuroImmunology, to communicate the research findings of its members. These meetings are held between April and July, and every third year the Society meets in Western Europe.

This annual meeting provides a forum for scientists to communicate current research findings, to present new ideas, and to ensure the growth and advancement of PNI research by offering the opportunity for students to meet established scientists. The scientific program usually features a Norman Cousins guest lecturer, symposia, oral presentations, poster sessions, a Senior Faculty/Trainee Colloquium, and informal group discussions. Travel awards, funded through an NIH Trainee travel grant, will be given to encourage the participation of trainee members.

Substantial emphasis will be placed upon trainees by providing update courses in basic disciplines (immunology, neuroscience, behavior) and by organizing a special dinner for trainees only. Information regarding the program or abstract submission is available on the PNIRS website.
