The Society for Acupuncture Research (SAR) was co-founded by Patricia Culliton, Hannah Bradford, and Stephen Birch in 1993 but began as an informal group (the Committee for Acupuncture Research), which first met in 1991.  Those who attended the first meeting were interested in discussing the methodological concerns in acupuncture research.  After several further meetings in 1991 and 1992, the group evolved to become a formal organization, the Society for Acupuncture Research, whose original vision was to both foster scientifically sound inquiries and stimulate scholarship in acupuncture and Oriental medicine.  To this end, SAR decided to sponsor annual symposia on research methodologies in acupuncture and Oriental medicine.  SAR is currently guided by Co-Presidents Lixing Lao and Rosa Schnyer with a total of 12 board members.
