British Society for Neuroendocrinology

Multiscale dynamics in the CNS


The British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN) is a scientific society that exists to promote research and learning into the interplay between the endocrine and nervous systems that control important body processes. The ultimate aim of this research is to provide therapies for neuroendocrine diseases and disorders and to advance methods for beneficially regulating normal neuroendocrine function in humans and animals.

The Vision of the BSN is to be a vibrant and active society covering neuroendocrinology in its widest definition. It aims to provide a focus for promoting the subject and for networking between members. It aims to support members at all stages of their career and provide educational opportunities for early career researchers, using face-to-face and online activities. Whilst remaining primarily a UK society, the BSN welcomes participation from around the world.

The membership of the BSN comprises academics and researchers from the UK, European and International scientific communities, encompassing all areas of neuroendocrinology. The Society is run by a Board of Trustees representing the membership together with the Editor-in-Chief of the Society's Journal, the Journal of Neuroendocrinology. The Board of Trustees makes recommendations regarding strategy, funding vehicles, future meetings etc. to the Annual General Meeting of the Society, which is held at the annual scientific meeting. Sub-groups of committee members administer the different funding schemes that are available, and the Society's public engagement strategy.
