I.N.R.C. 50th anniversary meeting in NYC
The International Narcotics Research Conference (INRC) is one of the most significant meetings for researchers and clinicians working in the field of opioid pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and clinical studies. The first official meeting of the INRC was held in July 1969 in Basel, Switzerland as a satellite of the IUPHAR meeting. Since then, the INRC has been held annually for the last 49 years, and its membership has expanded significantly. The INRC is known to attract internationally-renowned scientists who regularly present ground-breaking research. This conference has always been an impactful meeting where scientists from different specialties come together to identify novel mechanisms and therapeutic strategies for the treatment of addiction, chronic pain, and mood disorders. In addition, a fundamental philosophy of the INRC community is to engage trainees, and highlight their contribution as young scientists. Within the meeting agenda, the organizing committee makes a concerted effort to include talks from post-doctoral fellows and graduate students, and provides ample opportunity for engaging discussions between senior scientists and trainees.
Many thanks to the 2019 INRC Organizing Committee:

The International Narcotics Research Conference (INRC) is an international forum for pre-clinical and clinical researchers to strengthen our knowledge of opioid pharmacology and function. Our society provides the opportunity to share cutting edge and pioneering advancements related to all disciplines of opioid research. The INRC meetings are a platform for the design of evidence-based guidance for constructive use of opioids for pain management, and understanding of opioid misuse and abuse.
