Isbra-Esbra Berlin 2016 | World Congress on Alcohol and Alcohlism

It is our privilege and special pleasure to welcome you to the World Congress on Alcohol and Alcoholism. This is a joint meeting of the International Society of Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ISBRA) and the European Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ESBRA). Both societies have chosen Berlin for its World Congress in September 2nd-5th, 2016.
Both societies are promoting excellence either on the European or international level in biomedical research on alcohol and alcoholism. ISBRA was founded in 1982 and ESBRA in 1988 as non-profit scientific organisations and the executive boards of both societies felt that it is time to join forces.During this World Congress key opinion leaders will share with us the recent innovations in their respective fields which impact on basic and preclinical knowledge on alcoholism and alcohol-related biomedical phenomena, as well as on diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of our patients. High scientific level sessions will be organized: plenary lectures, symposia, interactive and educational workshops and debates. Therefore our World Congress will offer a wide range of outstanding data in scientific fields from the biomedical basis of alcoholism in animal and human experimental models to alcohol-related treatment issues, all the way to alcohol-related psychosocial aspects and epidemiology and health economics. Cross-fertilization, so to speak mutual exchange, as between dissimilar findings, concepts and ideas will be the motto of this meeting as it will enhance understanding and will produce something beneficial to our research.The organizers give a warm welcome to the World Congress – enjoy best science and friendship in Berlin – one of the top attractive places to be!Rainer Spanagel, Chair Scientific Committees • Susumu Higuchi, President ISBRA • Tomáš Zima, President ESBRA
