Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to ISAD 2019:  Emerging Mood Science and Clinical Innovation and, for the second time, to its host city, London.

The ISAD Conference is the most important gathering of the Affective Disorders community and is now an outstanding international meeting. The Scientific Programme this year will once again take in fundamental, clinical and translational issues in affective disorders, with experts from around the world travelling to London to make this a stimulating arena for the discussion of ideas. We will also enjoy posters and oral communications from our emerging and early career researchers.

We would like to thank all those who have worked so hard to organise this Congress, both in the International Society for Affective Disorders and scientists from around the world who’ve given their time freely. We are also very grateful to the many generous sponsors of the meeting and participants of the technical exhibition.

We look forward to an exciting meeting that promises great scientific debate and enjoyable social interaction. We very much hope you enjoy the Conference and your visit to the great city of London.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Conference in November 2019!
