Letter of the President of the ISC


Dear ISC members,

The International Society for Chronobiology (ISC) is back to full activity and has just elected its new Board. This is the strongest support I can imagine for the traditional good wishes we exchange among Chronobiologists -many of us also longtime personal friends- at the end of a year, looking forward to a bright future.
