About the Host Society
The International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism
Biomedical research on alcoholism has given rise to important advances in knowledge and treatment of alcoholism. Comparative and collaborative research at an international level has made and will continue to make, important contributions to our understanding of alcoholism and improvements in therapies.
These developments led to the birth of the International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism in 1981, bringing together researchers and their expertise from a number of national societies which are now affiliated to ISBRA.
ISBRA’s mission is to promote excellence internationally in all aspects of biomedical research on alcoholism and alcohol-related biomedical phenomena.
The International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ISBRA) is a nonprofit corporation organized exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, including the following:
- To promote research and disseminate information on alcoholism and alcohol-related biomedical phenomena, as well as associated psychosocial factors and comorbid disorders and diseases;

- To advise national and international agencies on alcohol-related research and policy;
- To promote the spirit of fraternity and international collaboration among and through its members via the organization of international scientific meetings, production and distribution of written materials, collaboration on possible research funding opportunities, and the organization of seminars, workshops and clinics.
