ISMB provides support for major international meetings in matrix biology. To apply for meeting support, conference organizers are requested to apply at least 6 months before the meeting. Applications should include full details of the meeting being organized, its relevance to matrix biology and the purpose for which the proposed ISMB contribution will be used. Deadlines: January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1. Applications for meeting support should be sent to the ISMB secretary.
