The Italian Scientists and Scholars of North America Foundation (ISSNAF) is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to connect, empower, and celebrate the Italian intellectual diaspora in North America.


The Bay Area Chapter, founded in September of 2017, includes over 180 researchers, scholars, and technologists representing more than 20 universities and research centers across the San Francisco Bay Area. From Modesto to Davis and Santa Cruz, our members specialize in the sciences and medicine as well as arts and the humanities at all career levels, from distinguished scientists, department chairs and directors, to junior researchers and post-docs.
