Who are we?

The Argentine Society of Clinical Investigation (SAIC) was founded in 1960 by Dr. Alfredo Lanari together with other clinical researchers. Today, it is one of the most prestigious Societies in our country with the highest number of members, including the most notable representatives of biomedical investigation in Argentina. Renowned professors and/or researchers belonging to CONICET and different Universities are counted among its more than 700 members.

SAIC is a multidisciplinary scientific society with interests in basic and applied research; it is a founding member of the Bioscience Network, affiliated to the Association for the Progress of Sciences and the Forum of Scientific Societies of our country.

The Society is structured in three parts: the Education Committee, the Ethics Committee and the Directory Board. The first one organizes several training activities, the second evaluates clinical investigation protocols and the third supervises the other two and fosters the most important activity the Society executes every year: The International Annual Meeting, which has been organized by the Society for more than 60 years. The Directory Board focuses in this work.
