A Letter From Our President
The International Neurotoxin Association (INA) is a not-for-profit, international scientific society dedicated to advancing scientific research, supporting education, and fostering understanding about botulinum and other neurotoxins. The INA provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among scientists, clinicians, and other allied health professionals about the science and therapeutic use of neurotoxins.
The key forum for the exchange of information and ideas are the international neurotoxin conferences. The TOXINS 2022 6th International Conference took place July 27-30, 2022, at the New Orleans Marriott, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. The conference was a tremendous success with 542 clinicians and scientists from 28 countries and a US and international faculty of 86. One hundred thirty-three conference abstracts have been published in the journal Toxicon; 115 posters were presented and displayed.
The conference abstracts of TOXINS 2022 have been published in an online supplement of the journal Toxicon and will be available via open access for 6 months. Abstracts can be accessed by following the link below:
