The scope of ISCCB meetings

     The ISCCB is a group of about 300 scientists worldwide, who meet every 2 years (see below, list of previous meetings and places) to present advances in our understanding of catecholamine biosynthesis, trafficking, storage, release, and actions. Catecholamines are crucial pathophysiologic actors in such neuropsychiatric and cardiovascular disease processes as movement disorders, mood and thought disturbances, hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, and stroke. This important model system therefore bridges clinical medicine to basic cardiovascular and neurobiological research. Within the basic sciences, chromaffin cell biology benefits from advances in neurobiology, pharmacology, endocrinology, and cardiovascular biology. The audience will be composed of an international mixture of senior and junior scientists, as well as pre- and post-doctoral trainees. These scientists come to learn about the latest advances in the processes of catecholamine storage, release, and actions.
