The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP), founded in 1961, is the nation's premier professional society in brain, behavior, and psychopharmacology research. The field of neuropsychopharmacology involves the evaluation of the effects of natural and synthetic compounds upon the brain, mind, and human behavior.
The core purpose of the ACNP is to advance scientific understanding of and to facilitate communication about disorders of the brain and behavior in order to further their prevention and treatment. The ACNP has historically provided a venue at which the best scientists from academia, government, and industry have gathered to share, discuss, and debate their research. The meeting has served as a catalyst to advance discovery and disseminate information about scientific advances.
Like most professional medical societies, funding for the ACNP comes from a variety of sources including membership dues, royalties from publication sales, meeting registration fees, and grants from corporations or governmental agencies. The College has developed policies and procedures to either eliminate or to properly manage both real and perceived conflicts of interest, and to separate financial issues from operational decisions. We have established firewalls to protect the integrity of College operations and to prevent the influence of financial sponsors from penetrating decision making processes of the College.
