Message from the President

Following the resounding scientific and social success of CINP2023 in Montreal, preparations are now in full swing for next year’s meeting in Tokyo, which will be held in conjunction with the JSNP and JSCNP.

We are delighted that several internationally renowned speakers have already agreed to join us, including Dr Joshua Gordon, Dr Virginia Lee and Dr George Koob. But perhaps the most exciting and important aspect of the congress is the opportunity for members of the CINP community to present their own work in an environment whose scientific quality is widely acknowledged. Symposia submission is already open, while abstract submission will open shortly, and we urge you to submit your work for presentation to our uniquely global audience.

Please subscribe to our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram)  for regular updates on both scientific content and submission deadlines – and don’t forget to like, share and retweet.

This year marks a new chapter for CINP and we’ll shortly be sharing more information about several initiatives that already underway and other planned activities, including:

  • Increased co-operation with national and continental associations, which we will invite to arrange dedicated symposia at our world congresses, whilst we arrange similar sessions during their meetings.
  • Extensive collaboration with other global organizations including WPA, WFBP and WHO to establish best practice guidelines; CINP is taking the lead with regard to the first topic, PTSD.
  • Establishment of Global Community Networks (GCNs), active in sub-specialist disciplines such as Fast Acting Medications, PTSD, Digital Intervention, Difficult to Treat Depression. We are keen that this is an interactive process and focuses on the areas which are most important to our members; please let us have your suggestions as to topics and activities.
  • Increased community engagement and improved communication with members – again, please get in touch to let us know how we can best support you in your research and practice.

I believe that we have a real opportunity to enhance the role and relevance of CINP as a truly global organization, connecting and supporting the worldwide neuropsychopharmacological community. Please join us, if you are not already a member, to play your part and have your say in this exciting journey.

Take care and stay well


Prof Joseph Zohar

CINP President
