Memory Disorders Research Society

MDRS is a by-invitation-only professional society dedicated to the study of memory.
Members are engaged in basic and clinical research into how memory works and why it fails

The society meets annually. 

Founded by Dr. Laird Cermak, the inaugural meeting of MDRS was held in Boston in 1989. The society has met every year since. The venue of the annual meeting rotates, with a three-day meeting in autumn that is organized by a volunteer group of MDRS members from the host locale.
