Melbourne has won the bid to host the International College of Neuropsychopharmacology (CINP) World Congress from June 16 to 19, 2025, marking the city’s second time hosting this renowned event.
The CINP Annual Congress is a pivotal gathering for clinicians and researchers, bringing together experts in biology, psychiatry, neurology, pharmacology, and psychology from over 50 countries.
CINP2025, held in collaboration with the Asian College of Neuropsychopharmacology, is expected to attract over 1,000 leading professionals.
The CINP Congress program will feature plenary lectures, scientific symposia, interactive poster sessions, and a dedicated track for early career clinicians and researchers.
Melbourne’s reputation in medical research and innovation is bolstered by strategic investments in pioneering medical precincts. The city excels in neurosciences, including mental health, and boasts a robust ecosystem for drug development and commercialization.
The successful bid, led by the Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) with support from the Victorian Government and Tourism Australia‘s Business Events Bid Fund Program, will offer unparalleled opportunities for international communication and collaboration.
Professor Suresh Sundram, who will shortly assume the Presidency of the Asian College of Neuropsychopharmacology, said: “Victoria is a prominent hub for cutting-edge neuroscience research and the advancement of innovative therapies. The region plays an important role in driving medical progress, conducting around one third of Australia’s clinical trials, a significant share that underscores its pivotal contribution to medical research and development.”
