Membership Dues

A joint meeting of the Board of Directors and the Scientific Committee of the IPFO was held on September 6, 2022 during the 6th International Conference on Polyamines: Biochemical, Physiological and Clinical Perspectives in Tivoli (Rome). Professor Enzo Agostinelli, the IPFO President, explained the critical need for funds to support future Foundation activities including international conferences in the field of polyamines and their role in diseases, normal physiology, plants, and microorganisms and to support a new generation of scientists in the field of polyamines. It was unanimously decided to request an annual membership fee, as described in the table below, for supporting members who share the institutional aims outlined in the Statutes of the newly organized IPFO. Membership fees will only be used to support future polyamine scientific conferences and young investigators in the field of polyamines. Additional donations intended for the same uses from those interested in supporting the Foundation will be welcome. Future members of the Board of Directors and the Scientific Committee of the IPFO will be elected from the Foundation’s supporting members who have paid their annual membership fee. Payment of membership fees and additional donations can be made by credit card or wire transfer on the International Polyamines Foundation ONLUS website.
