It gives me great honor and pleasure to announce the inauguration of the Pakistan Society of Basic & Applied Neuroscience (PASBAN) on May 12, 2008.

PASBAN is a nonprofit educational and scientific organization chartered by the Government of Pakistan. Through PASBAN, we are hosting Annual Neuroscience Conferences (ANC) from last 6 years and Essential of Neuroscience Course (ENC) from last 3 years. I have seen a very enthusiastic participation in these academic events. It turns out that most of the attendees are students from medical colleges and universities across the country. The culture of science and particularly neuroscience is very rudimentary in Pakistan, but the enthusiasm that exudes from this young audience is very promising.

I welcome membership by the students and trainees who are interested in neuroscience. On behalf of the Executive Committee and the Advisory Board of PASBAN, I invite you all to join us as a member of PASBAN, and participate in the activities of PASBAN to improve the neuroscience concepts, to enhance neuroscience research in Pakistan and to stimulate other academic and organizational activities to help PASBAN achieve its mission and goals, so that the future generations are fully engaged in more rigorous East-West collaborations for the good of humanity.

We very much look forward to hearing from you if you have any advice or recommendation to enrich the role of PASBAN in Pakistan and worldwide.
