EuMelaNet

EuMelaNet stands for European Network for Melanin Research. EuMelaNet is a new Interest Group born within the European Society of Pigment Cell Research. Realizing the increasing interest in melanins and related biopolymers in Europe and several countries all over the world, in 2009 during the XV ESPCR meeting, held in Muenster, a number of researchers from academic and research institutions decided to implement a research network, the European Network for Melanin Research (EuMelaNet), with the aim of promoting research on melanins and melanogenesis at multidisciplinary level and offering their collective knowledge and expertise to meet the growing demand for new bio-based materials on the part of companies and health institutions.

The scientific coordinator of EuMelaNet is Prof. Marco d’Ischia (Department of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy). Those interested might contact EuMelaNet by sending an email message to eumelanet@espcr.org or by visiting the “contact us” web page.

The new ESPCR Society, “ESPCR AISBL“, has just established a brand new bank account where we will be processing all your membership payment requests.

Therefore, currently, ESPCR AISBL can only accept payments by Bank Wire Transfer or by Cheque.

Payment through BANK WIRE TRANSFER using IBAN and BIC bank account codes is the preferred form of payment. Payment by Bank Wire Transfer is not surcharged. Payment by Cheque is surcharged with 15 Euros.

Deadline for receiving your application for 2010 ESPCR Membership is December 31st, 2009.
