ABOUT ISSED

The International Society for the Study of Emerging Drugs (ISSED) is established to unite the world’s multidisciplinary leaders on Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS), emerging substances, and associated trends in regularized discourse, partnership and study, with a goal to develop innovative strategies for interventions, while counteracting the threat posed by NPS and emergent substances in society.

Through collaboration of international leaders working in the fields of medicine, public health, law enforcement, forensic sciences, drug policy, social sciences, and academia, commonalities in emergent trends and substances will be expediently identified, studied, and integrated into informed public health and public safety policy.

ISSED will be formally launched at the VII International Conference on Novel Psychoactive Substances in Rome, Italy on 18 – 19 November 2020.
