Benefits of Membership
Founded in 2004 with its first meeting February 2005, the ISCTM has established itself as a vital and important forum for addressing significant issues that influence the development of treatments for patients with CNS disorders. With financial and intellectual support from Industry, Academic, Regulatory and Government sectors, the ISCTM hosts 2 scientific meetings per year, annual Research-to-Policy Forum, ongoing working groups, and organizes member teams to submit ISCTM comments on pertinent Guidances. ISCTM continues in its committment to provide an environment where key stakeholders gather in a non-competitive space for the purpose of identifying the challenges and opportunities that confront all of us as we try to make an important difference in the life of the patient. We uniquely tackle thorny and topical issues, by emphasizing in-depth discussion, consensus building, and recommendations for action that lead to solutions.
To date, ISCTM has been able to provide this service primarily through the unrestricted support of pharmaceutical industry sponsors. However, one of the basic tenets of the society is to remain independent from any commercial interest. Because the ISCTM recognizes the utmost importance of this commitment to commercial independence, ISCTM has targeted a long term goal of self-support. This is being accomplished through managing all expenditures, operational and meeting related, with utmost fiscal efficiency so that funds can be set aside toward this goal.
Not only does your membership support our financial obligations, most importantly, this Society’s value is in the quality of its membership. Members are actively involved in the scientific activities of the society, whether developing meeting agendas, chairing working groups, developing publications, etc, and therefore we must have a quality core of membership.
Besides the satisfaction of knowing you have made a contribution to your field by supporting the mission of the ISCTM, below are tangible Benefits of Membership. We hope you will consider joining our community of scientists, clinicians, regulators and educators.
