IGSAD (International Group for the Study of Affective Disorders) by Jules Angst

The International Group for the Study of Affective Disorders (IGSAD) was founded in 1970 by Jules Angst, Jan-Otto Ottosson, Carlo Perris and George Winokur.  IGSAD’s inaugural meeting was organized by Pierre Pichot in Paris in 1970. The meetings of IGSAD provided a valuable forum for leading mood researchers to meet with some regularity in order to exchange and discuss their findings. The first meetings dealt with the classification and long-term course of mood disorders, and with the prophylactic efficacy of lithium. The last meeting of the IGSAD took place in 1990.
