About the ASMB Biennial Meeting

The ASMB organizes an international scientific conference historically held in the Fall of even-numbered years. Still, this year Biennial Meeting will be held September 12 – 15, 2021, at Hyatt St. Louis at the Arch. The Biennial Meetings, which began in 2002, attracts participants worldwide and has proved to be a rewarding venue to learn of the latest developments in matrix biology and related fields in a relaxed, collegial environment. Furthermore, the ASMB meeting is a great event to highlight and promote trainees and junior investigators through targeted awards and focused sessions. The Biennial Meetings also provides a forum for the ASMB to recognize the significant contributions of young and established scientists.
