APA Annual Meeting

ECNP at APA meeting

In May, as part of our outreach plans to audiences beyond Europe, ECNP participated in the 2018 APA Annual Meeting in New York, with an exhibition booth. The booth featured information about the College and its activities, in particular the ECNP Congress and Neuroscience-based Nomenclature (NbN) initiative. NbN was also showcased in a special three-hour scientific session in the APA programme chaired by APA Past President Maria Antonia Oquendo.

Visitors to the booth could win a free registration to the 31st ECNP Congress in Barcelona.

We are happy to announce that the winner is: Irene Posalaky from Portugal.
