Ever imagined what you would look like without the firm matrices produced by a large variety of cells? Exactly, like a sophisticated jelly fish! This immediately underlines the importance of the Dutch Society for Matrix Biology.

The Society for Matrix Biology (in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging voor Matrix Biologie, abbreviated as NVMB) aims at promoting scientific research of both fundamental and applied nature into the characteristics and function of the extracellular matrix in health and disease.

The NVMB unites researchers in the field of matrix biology from all Dutch universities and other research institutes.
