ISAN Members, SPARC Investigators and the Autonomic Neuroscience Community


On behalf of the International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience, we are pleased to invite you to attend the International Society of Autonomic Neuroscience meeting. It is to be held at UCLA in Los Angeles CA from July 25-27, 2019 with activities centered at the Luskin Conference Center.

This meeting provides a forum for autonomic neuroscience investigators from around the world to gather, discuss and share ideas on a broad range of topics related to the autonomic nervous system. This year we are partnering with NIH-funded SPARC investigators to provide an expanded multi-disciplinary program.

As you can see from our preliminary program, we have assembled internationally recognized experts focusing on structure/function organization for autonomic control of cardiac and visceral organs ranging from mouse to man, from single cell to integrated autonomic network control.

In keeping with our mission to promote our young investigators, there are oral and poster presentation opportunities for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

We hope that you will join us for this innovative meeting and for the opportunity to enjoy the many sights and sounds of mid-summer in Los Angeles while UCLA celebrates its centennial.

With Regards (on behalf of ISAN 2019 Organizing Committee)

The International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience

The International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience came to life on July 2, 1994 at a meeting in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Melbourne, Australia and will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2019. Those present at this meeting which established the Society were Roger Dampney, John Furness, David Hirst, Marcello Costa, Bill Blessing and Max Bennett. The purposes of the Association are to facilitate communication between those working in, and to raise the profile of, Autonomic Neuroscience.
