It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our Honorary Member Dr James (Jim) Harris, a much loved member of the SSBP family. 

His funeral will be on Friday 9th April and an e-condolence book has been set up for individual messages.

 

James was a much-valued and stalwart supporter of the SSBP over many years and will be greatly missed.
 
Our heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with his wife, Cathy, and family.

Save the Date - SSBP Virtual Symposium - 9th-10th September 2021

We are delighted to announce that SSBP 2021 will be going ahead as a fully online conference on 9th-10th September 2021. We hope that a virtual meeting will give as many people as possible the chance to present and participate, and will allow our global SSBP community to gather, regardless of any travel restrictions that may still be in place in September. 

 

SSBP 2021 will be a general conference, with abstracts welcomed on any topic within the broad area of research into behavioural phenotypes. Abstract submission will open in March, with a submission deadline of the end of May (31st). 

 

Presentations will either take the form of either a pre-recorded talk or an uploaded poster. There will be live online discussion sessions at a range of times to allow members across the globe to participate fully. All presentations will also be available on the SSBP website for the duration of the conference. We are planning an exciting programme of keynote speakers and a range of live virtual social events and discussion sessions – latest details will be announced on the website.

 

We are really looking forward to this exciting opportunity, and hope that you will be able to join us!

A message from the Chair of the SSBP

Welcome to the website of the Society for the Study of Behavioural Phenotypes (SSBP). The SSBP believes that progress in understanding the behavioural features associated with often complex genetic conditions is best served by providing a focus and point of contact for medical researchers and health care professionals working with those whose lives are affected by these conditions.

 

On our website and the linked SSBP Conference website you will find information about a wide range of syndromes and about the activities of the SSBP including our annual international research symposium, with its associated Education Days reaching out to the wider community of patients and their families.
