The International Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS) is a learned society that was founded in 1996.[1] The goal of IBANGS is "to promote the field of neurobehavioural genetics".[2]

Profile[edit]

Mission[edit]

The IBANGS mission statement is to promote the field of neurobehavioural genetics[2] by:

Awards[edit]

Each year IBANGS recognizes top scientists in the field of neurobehavioral genetics with:[8][9]

  • The IBANGS Distinguished Investigator Award for distinguished lifetime contributions to neurobehavioral genetics
  • The IBANGS Young Scientist Award for promising young scientists
  • Travel Awards to attend an IBANGS Annual Meeting for students, postdocs, and junior faculty, financed by a meeting grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism[10][11][12]

A Distinguished Service Award for exceptional contributions to the field is given on a more irregular basis and as of 2014 has been awarded only twice, to Benson Ginsburg (2001) and Wim Crusio (2011).[13]

History[edit]

IBANGS was founded in 1996 as the European Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society, with Hans-Peter Lipp as its founding president.[1] The name and scope of EBANGS were changed to International at the first meeting of the society in Orléans, France in 1997.[1][14] IBANGS is a founding member of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies.[2]

The current president is Lisa Tarantino (2014-2015).[15] Previous presidents have been:[16]
