IFCB- International Federation for Cell Biology

CBI-Cell Biology International
International Congress of Cell Biology

The IFCB continues to fulfill its functions with a minimum of organization and at a low overhead cost. The organization of each international congress is delegated to a sponsoring member society which takes full responsibility as host for the congress. The IFCB normally provides a block grant to the congress organizers to help young cell biologists mainly from developing countries to attend the meetings. These funds are allocated by the appropriate committee of the congress (which includes an appropriate IFCB official or nominee) and is based on an assessment of the scientific quality of the abstracts submitted. Grants usually cover only part of the travel costs or subsistence.
