About IAN

The Indian Academy of Neurosciences (IAN) came to existence in 1982 with the efforts of Late Prof. K.P. Bhargava, Late Prof. Mahdi Hasan, Prof. S.S. Parmar, Prof. B.N. Dhawan, Prof. P.K. Seth and other eminent neuroscientists. Ever since its inception the Academy has been active in promoting neurosciences. It has been holding meetings regularly at different centres involved in neuroscience research in the country. Besides, the Academy has organized and sponsored symposia, workshops and conferences in areas of current interest.

The Academy recognizes eminent Neuroscientists by electing them as Fellows and Honorary Fellows. The Academy has instituted BK Bachhawat Life Time Achievement Award and KT Shetty Memorial Oration which are conferred on the scientist for his/her outstanding contributions in neurosciences. To encourage young scientists, the Academy has instituted awards for poster and oral presentations and published work. The Academy also provides Travel Fellowships to candidates seeking support for participation in the annual conference of Indian Academy of Neurosciences. The Academy publishes a Newsletter and a Journal – Annals of Neurosciences. A Membership Directory is also available which is updated from time to time.

Indian Academy of Neurosciences has good amalgamation of basic and clinical researchers. Started with few neuroscientists in 1982, the Academy has grown into a sizable organization of dedicated members. At present, the Academy has over 900 life members from India, Germany, Japan, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, UK and USA. Annual meetings of the Academy are also attended by foreign members and thus provide a unique forum for interaction among the neuroscientists from India and abroad.

The Academy invites you to join the league of neuroscientists and become Academy member and help the Academy achieve its goals and objectives.
