Meeting of the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology @ Utrecht, The Netherlands – July 26-28 2023

The International Society of Developmental Psychobiology (ISDP), is an international organization founded in 1968 for the purpose of encouraging research on the development of behavior in all organisms including man, with special attention to the effects of biological factors operating at any level of organization. ISDP 2023, the 56th Annual Meeting of the ISDP, will bring together a multidisciplinary group of over 300 international researchers from all areas of developmental psychobiology ranging from clinical psychiatrists to ethologists to molecular biologists with a common interest in promoting translational research by emphasizing the integration of basic and clinical research approaches. Symposium sessions will cover cutting-edge interdisciplinary data and novel methods relevant to longitudinal and translational models of development with special emphasis on how environmental factors, such as early adversity, alter developmental trajectories. Research promoting both human and animal models highlighting complementary or translational work across species will be presented in Oral and Poster Sessions over three days with ample opportunity for networking and scientific discussion. ISDP’s annual meeting provides a unique opportunity for advanced researchers, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduate students who share a common interest in developmental processes share their science in a scholarly and collegial atmosphere with no competing sessions which facilitates interactions across disciplines and levels of expertise.

As an international society we are excited about returning to Europe for the first time since 2015, to the Crowne Plaza Utrecht – Central Station, the beating heart of the Netherlands and very convenient to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, which is less than 30 minutes by train. We are pleased to invite you to participate.
