International Society for Molecular Neurodegeneration

The International Society for Molecular Neurodegeneration, or ISMND, is a nonprofit organization that serves as an accelerator for the continuous improvement of brain and eye health and well-being by creating a multidisciplinary global platform for scientists, physicians, and the public from different facets and scientific disciplines to more readily connect, share and communicate scientific discoveries, and develop cures for neurodegenerative diseases, in the hopes of a world free of brain and eye diseases.

Welcome to ISMND!

As the Founder and current President of the International Society for Molecular Neurodegeneration (ISMND), it is with great joy that we welcome you to our website. The concept of ISMND was spurred by our passion for science community and many years of experience from research in the field of Molecular Neurodegeneration. ISMND was born in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, a time during which promoting alternative ways for people around the world to interact and stay connected had never been more important. With the creation of ISMND, we want to cultivate an inclusive and diverse place for all like minds to share creative ideas and experiences, as well as to provide helpful services for scientists in the field of Molecular Neurodegeneration.

Our mission is to connect investigators and to share scientific discoveries while helping with training the next generation of scientists. It is our wish to promote healthy brain aging and promote the development of effective and innovative therapeutics ultimately to prevent and cure neurodegenerative and eye diseases.

We sincerely hope that you will join our community and find this platform as a source of inspiration and help in advancing scientific careers for many years to come.
