Since its creation in 1991 by Jeanne-Marie
Lefauconnier and François Lasbennes, the blood-brain barrier club (BBB club) promoted a strong network between research groups working in the BBB field. Members of the club met every year to
present and share their works. The club was then headed by Pr. Lasbennes with the help of Pr. Françoise Roux as a secretary. In 2008, the BBB club became the Society for the Study of Blood-Brain
Interfaces (SEISC in french) which was headed by Pr. Lasbennes until 2011. Jean-Claude Thierry was the first treasurer of the association until 2011.
