XVIth Congress of the International Society of Bone Morphometry (ISBM 2024)
ISBM 2024 Dates and Location
MaRS Center and Discovery District
Sept 30th to Oct 3rd, 2024
101 College St, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Immediately following the 2024 ASBMR meeting
Who should attend?
Students, postdoctoral fellows, staff, faculty, and industry professionals that are interested in all aspects of the quantitative imaging and analysis of bone and bone-associated tissues.
- Do you use image-based technologies and techniques to advance your research (histology, CT, MRI, spatial omics, live microscopy, EM, etc, etc)?
- Do you want to enjoy the science while learning new protocols and techniques from leading experts in a fun and informal setting?
- Do you want to share your work and contribute to the advancement of the field?
If you answered yes, you sound like a great fit for ISBM. ISBM meetings provide a close-knit setting for bone heads and imaging enthusiasts alike, and are a great place to meet new people and form new collaborations. We welcome those of all abilities and at all stages of their careers. Hope to see you there!
Goals of the ISBM 2024 Meeting
- Provide a forum to discuss both conventional and novel morphometry-based approaches
- Implement training workshops lead by academic and industry experts
- Support career development of junior investigators and promote scientists from underrepresented groups
- Discuss standards for open data sharing of established and emerging morphometric techniques
We encourage you to explore the program and speakers for the ISBM 2024 congress, as well as our venue and hotels, travel award opportunities, sponsors, and procress for abstract submissions and registration.
History of the society
ISBM is a non-profit research 501(c)3 organization with origins in a series of Workshops on Bone Morphometry, the first of which was held in Ottawa in 1973. Our core mission is to educate and train clinicians and scientists in all aspects of bone morphometry, to provide a forum for experts to share and develop their research, to set standards within the field for skeletal imaging and morphometry, and to advance novel therapies to support lifelong skeletal health.
ISBM - a forum for advances in bone morphometry
Bone morphometry is the quantitative imaging of skeletal tissues. This encompasses dynamic histomorphometry to spatial transcriptomics, representing an essential suite of experimental approaches that enable rigorous examination of skeletal structure and biology. Recent advances provide exciting opportunities for bone researchers to examine cells and tissues at a level not previously possible. In addition, conventional approaches such as microcomputed tomography and histology continue to require detailed expertise, raising the need to provide a forum where discussion and training can take place.
