The International Society of Developmental Biologists
The International Society of Developmental Biologists (ISDB) is a non-profit scientific association which has as its aim the promotion of the study of developmental biology. To this effect, 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.
The ISDB is proud co-sponsor of a new distinguished lectures program with its official journal, Mechanisms of Development, as part of our continuing commitment to excellence in the field of developmental biology.
