CINP International Thematic Meeting
Edinburgh 25th – 27th April 2009
An innovative and exciting new format of CINP meeting began in 2009. This Thematic Meeting was international in scope with an engaging mixture of education sessions and scientific symposia. The meeting was focused on a single theme, concentrating on specific topics and incorporating educational and professional development in addition to research sessions. The first such CINP Thematic Meeting was held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), Edinburgh, Scotland, UK from Saturday 25 to Monday 27 April 2009, one of the world’s leading capital cities with a dramatic setting and vibrant culture.
The theme was “Major Psychoses and Substance Abuse.”
CINP were delighted to bring together many of the opinion leaders in the challenging area of co-morbidity issues relating to Major Psychoses and Substance Abuse. Our Plenary Lecturers Prof. Robin Murray, Prof. Trevor Robbins and Prof. Alan Green set the scene for the meeting, and delegates had the opportunity to meet at first hand the key research workers in the fields of Major Psychoses and Substance Abuse.
