I am deeply honored to assume the role of President of our society, a position that embodies our collective passion and dedication to the field of neuroscience. I embark on this journey with a strong sense of responsibility and enthusiasm for what we can achieve together.
Our field is at the forefront of some of the most exciting and stimulating frontiers of science. The complexity of the brain and the urgency to find cures for neurological and psychiatric disorders require our constant commitment and innovative thinking. My priorities are clear: to promote a collaborative environment, foster innovative research across all domains of neuroscience, and advocate for the significance of neuroscience in advancing knowledge and health.
The challenges that lie ahead in the coming years are significant: the opportunity to see our country actively engaged in the European Partnership on Brain Health, scheduled by Horizon Europe in 2025, which could fund neuroscience research comprehensively; the need to address issues associated with transparent and responsible use of animals in research, to name just a few. All of this is with the awareness that solid research in all domains of neuroscience is an essential prerequisite for addressing the socio-economic impact of all neurological and psychiatric conditions.
Over the next two years, I commit to build upon the remarkable work of my predecessors, ensuring that our society continues to be a meeting point and a supportive community for neuroscientists at every stage of their careers. We will strive to enhance our outreach, engage a broader audience, and inspire the next generation of neuroscientists.
The strength of our society lies in its diversity: of ideas, approaches, and members. I am committed to promote inclusivity and provide platforms for all voices to be heard and respected. Together, we will create opportunities for meaningful dialogue, knowledge exchange, and professional growth.
I look forward to interacting with you, learning from your experiences, and working collaboratively to advance our field.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our Society.
President of SINS
