ISMB provides international travel grants (on average 500 Euros) for young scientists (graduate students or postdocs up to 5 years after Ph.D., with extensions for maternity leave, military service, etc) to allow them to attend major meetings in matrix biology anywhere in the world. While priority will be given to meetings directly supported by ISMB (including Matrix Biology Europe, the American Society for Matrix Biology and the Pan Pacific Connective Tissue Societies Symposium), applications are accepted for any meeting, provided that the scope of the meeting agrees with the aims of the Society.
