Societies

From Embryology

Introduction

There a number of different societies, federations and interest groups that relate to development. Some have a broad focus on all forms of development while some can be more narrowly related to human development and associated clinical issues. I have included a brief list and general information below, these groups are always happy to welcome new members and have either a journal or scientific meeting(s) associated with the group.

International Society of Developmental Biologists

The International Society of Developmental Biologists (ISDB) is a scientific association aiming to promote the study of developmental biology. The ISDB also organises and supports scientific meetings and workshops. Formerly known as the International Institute of Embryology (IIE), the ISDB was renamed in September 1968.
