posticon ISMB International Travel Grants


ISMB provides support (up to 1000 euros each) for young scientists (graduate students or postdocs up to 5 years after Ph.D.) in the form of international travel grants to allow them to attend major meetings in Matrix Biology anywhere in the world. To apply for a travel grant, please send your application to the ISMB secretary (), including a letter giving details of the meeting, the amount requested and a detailed justification for support, as well as the abstract of your poster/short talk, your curriculum vitae and list of publications.

Please, apply several months in advance of the MBE 2016 meeting, i.e. before one of the following deadlines : January 1 or April 1. Candidates should be members of the ISMB (see membership page for details). Grants are for international travel only and will be awarded on the basis of scientific excellence and relevance to Matrix Biology. Successful candidates will be notified no more than one month after each deadline. Following the meeting, awardees will be expected to send to the ISMB secretary a certificate of attendance as well as a short report (to appear on the ISMB web site with some selected for the ISMB newsletter) in the form of a personal perspective on their experience at the meeting.
