A Letter From Our President



Dear Colleague,

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.

A primary focus of the INA is to organize the international “TOXINS” conferences. Due to restrictions associated with the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, our fifth international conference, TOXINS 2021: Basic Science and Clinical Aspects of Botulinum and Other Neurotoxins, was held as a virtual event 16-17 January 2021. The conference was a tremendous success with 1101 clinicians and scientists representing 63 countries participating. The event was also made available on demand and was accessed by 328 participants.

The conference abstracts of TOXINS 2021 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:

I wish to invite you to join the INA. Our membership is open to individuals with an interest in the field and can be requested by clicking on the “Membership” tab above and completing the application form. Currently, there is no fee for membership. I look forward to welcoming you as an INA member!

We anticipate that TOXINS 2022 will be a highly successful event and look forward to your participation.
