The Society for In Vitro Biology (SIVB) was founded in 1946 as
the Tissue Culture Association to foster exchange of knowledge
of in vitro biology of cells, tissues and organs from both plant
and animals (including humans). The focus is on biological research,
development, and applications of significance to science and society.
To support the SIVB and its future endeavors.
The mission is accomplished through the Society's publications;
national and local conferences, meetings and workshops; and through
support of teaching initiatives in cooperation with educational
Over the years, SIVB has expanded to create an environment
of scientific exchange and interdisciplinary synergy with the
goal of advancing current and future systems for in vitro biology.
