GEBIN is a network that combines activities in different German scientific societies with a special interest in Behavior-Neuro-Endocrine-Immune interactions. People interested in GEBIN typically concentrate on interdisciplinary research foci. The different German scientific societies have so-called study groups which bridge the own discipline and other research subjects. The spokesmen of these study groups come together in the Steering Committee of the GEBIN.
The GEBIN is a non-profit network without strict formal rules. It is open for interested people who are dedicated to interdisciplinary thinking and research. The GEBIN was founded in November 1997 in Munich during the Volkswagen-Symposium “Neuroimmunologie, Verhalten und Befinden”. The promotion of scientific interactions and the coordination of information exchange between these different groups is one of the main aims of this network. GEBIN has written a position paper on interdisciplinary research that highlights the GEBIN philosophy and problems of interdisciplinary research.
The GEBIN invites all study groups of other German scientific societies with interdisciplinary research projects, which bridge the immune system, the endocrine system, and the nervous system. Recently (2017), the GEBIN started to restructure and soon this will be seen on the GEBIN homepage: www.gebin.org.
The next highlight of the GEBIN will be the combined meeting of the GEBIN with PNIRS in 2019 in Berlin.
