The IFPCS is an international organization devoted to the study of various aspects of the pigment cells. It consists of four regional scientific societies (ASPCR, ESPCR, JSPCR and PASPCR) and represents more than 1,000 scientists and experts in the field. Our mission is to improve the visibility and impact of pigment cell research through three principal means of communication and a recurring event:
- International Pigment Cell Conference (IPCC). Organised every three years by one of the Regional Societies on behalf of the IFPCS. Our next (26th) IPCC meeting (IPCC2026) will be organized by the ASPCR and be held in New Delhi (India) on October 1-4, 2026.
- Peer-reviewed, scientific journal Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research. The official publication of the International Federation of Pigment Cell Societies and the Society for Melanoma Research.
- Special Interest Groups. Chaired by internationally respected scientists, these groups focus on specific topics in pigment cell research.
