International Society of Amyloidosis (ISA)
Rochester, Minnesota, United States Email Web
International Society of Amyloidosis (ISA) is non-profit organization of scientists and physicians engaged in research, teaching, or practice in connection with amyloid and amyloidosis. The aims of our Society are to promote research, education, clinical studies (including diagnosis and treatment), conferences and symposia on all aspects of amyloidosis worldwide.
After an informal history beginning in 1967, the ISA became an official Society, founded in 2002. It aims to foster international interaction to move the field forward for patients affected with all types of amyloidosis.
ISA is also responsible for the editorial content of the journal, Amyloid – The Journal of Protein Folding Disorders, and serves as the facilitator for an International workshop. This International workshop occurs approximately every two years and hosts more than 500 physicians and scientists from across the world.
