Current continental distribution of ISTT Members

The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) has reached 250 Members in June 2008. Our Society was founded in 2006, although the initial discussions towards the foundation of ISTT started right after the TT2005 Meeting held in Barcelona.

We finished our first year, 2006, with 125 members, increased to 220 members in 2007, when we had the TT2007 Meeting, held in Brisbane (Australia), and now, in June 2008, we have doubled our initial number of members and we are currently more than 250 members distributed world-wide.

The ISTT is a very active Society, organising, promoting and sponsoring meetings, symposia, courses and workshops. Among other activities, from the ISTT we have promoted/co-organised or co-sponsored events in: Brisbane, London, Houston, Sao Paulo, Montevideo and Toronto.
