SFB 2021 Registration will open December 2020

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we are planning to hold the meeting in Chicago in person in April 2021.  In the event that pandemic-related travel restrictions persist, we will switch to a virtual meeting platform and will work to accommodate all accepted poster and oral presentations on that platform.  We anticipate that virtual registration rates will be lower than in-person registration rates as food and beverage expenses will not be incurred. Any registration made at the in-person rate will be eligible for credit to the virtual rate should that come to pass.

If you would like to be included on one of the Society's new ListServs (Listed below), please click here.

  • Young Scientists Group
  • Room Sharing (conference hotel only, please)
  • Under-Represented Minorities
  • Women in Biomaterials
