NAS is a community of over 200 autophagists representing over 40 research groups in the Nordic

and the Baltic countries.

Our main purpose and vision are to:

– strengthen autophagy-related research in the member countries

– facilitate interaction, knowledge exchange and co-operation between researchers in the member countries

– promote interactions with autophagy researchers outside the member countries, including interacting with other Autophagy Associations

– serve as a platform for information exchange and an interphase for interaction with associations of other fields

– visualize Northern European autophagy research and researchers internationally and get more recognition for autophagy research in the member countries.
