Mission of the IAC-USNC

Join our Mailing List   Contact Us
The IAC-USNC (International Affairs Committee /US National Committee) is jointly appointed by the Society for Neuroscience and the National Academy of Sciences, and represents the interests of both organizations in the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). The Committee also advises the SFN Council on matters affecting the Society's relationship with individuals or organizations outside North America, including those affecting foreign members of the Society, or relationships between the SFN and scientific or professional societies of countries outside of North America. The committee aims to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge to the world's neuroscientists, particularly those in developing countries; promote research or professional training activities across international borders; and enhance public awareness of neuroscience worldwide. In addition to support from SfN, NAS and IBRO, the committee is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (specifically NIDA, NIMH and NINDS).
