ESR is looking for you!
The NVMB is a society that aims to provide a platform for young scientists working in the field of matrix biology, to build a network and present their work. Members of the Early Stage Research (ESR) committee support the NVMB society in reaching out to junior researchers and organizing interactive sessions during the Annual Meeting: to stimulate cooperation and increase network opportunities.
