Welcome to the International Society for Matrix Biology
The purpose of the ISMB is to promote matrix biology on a global scale. To do this, we support international meetings in the area of matrix biology through funding for invited speakers, awards for outstanding contributions from both junior scientists and established investigators, and also international travel grants. We also work closely with Elsevier in promoting the journal Matrix Biology and produce a regular newsletter with up-to-date information on new developments in the field, as well as employment opportunities.
To join the ISMB, go the membership page where you can pay on line, with different rates for students, postdocs, regular members, retired members, with or without personal subscription to Matrix Biology at a discount rate.
Matrix biology mourns the loss of one of the giants in the field, Dick Heinegard. Click here to read a celebration of Dick’s life and numerous contributions to the field (soon to appear in Matrix Biology) put together by Renato Iozzo and several other of Dick’s friends and colleagues.
