The Purine Club

The Purine Club is a non-profit scientific association founded in 1990 in Milan, Italy, with the aim of gathering both basic and clinical researchers interested in the pathophysiology of ATP and adenosine, and to foster scientific exchanges between the academia and industry in this specific research field.

Initially meant to represent a reference point for Italian scientists, in 1994 it was opened to all interested scientists in the world and the "National Chapters" of the Purine Club were established. The Club has now more than 400 members.

The Purine Club has organized "Purines '92", the first of a series of international meetings to be held every four years. The first edition was successfully held in Milan in June 1992 with the participation of 265 scientists from 23 different countries.
