The International Society of Protistologists is an association of scientists devoted to research on single-celled eukaryotes, or protists. The ISOP promotes the presentation and discussion of new or important facts and problems in protistology, and works to provide resources for the promotion and advancement of this science.

 

ISOP recognizes the growing need to connect protistologists displaced by disasters, both man-made and natural.

To serve our community, we have established ISOP Solidarity Forums, bulletin boards on the ISOP website where protistologists affected by disasters and those willing to host scientists can make contact. The platform will remain available to any protistologists who are dispossessed and displaced due to natural or man-made disasters as a way for ISOP to continue fostering our field and our community.

Now is the time that we can come together as a community of scholars in mutual aid. 

The ISOP states our support for all of our protistology colleagues and their families who are affected by the invasion of Ukraine and we condemn the destruction and loss of life. For other international initiatives available to help threatened scholars and scientists, please see
https://scienceforukraine.eu/ and https://www.scholarsatrisk.org/

The Society of Protozoologists began its publication of The Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology in 1954 with the first issue dedicated to the memory of L. L. Woodruff. It has been published uninterrupted since then, promoting the study of protozoa in particular, and protists in general.

The May/June 2022 issue is now available online. On the cover: Three-dimensional ultrastructure of Cyrilia lignieresi gametocyte inside red blood cells of the fish Synbranchus marmoratus. (See Turiel-Silva et al. https://doi.org/10.1111/jeu.12894)
