Home > About CSCB > Profile


Founded in 1980, the Chinese Society for Cell Biology (CSCB) is one of the leading scientific organizations in China. With over 15,000 members, the CSCB is home to scientists, as well as teachers and students in that field.

The CSCB is dedicated to facilitating learning and innovation through conferences and journals, promoting research collaboration, providing training opportunities to students and young scientists, and educating the general public in cell biology and biomedicine.

Since its foundation, the CSCB has strived to achieve multiple goals. Through national conferences, and many specialized meetings, it has created platforms for all its members to actively participate in scientific exchanges. The CSCB also provides multiple training courses to graduate students and young teachers each year. CSCB-sponsored research journals, including Cell Research and JMCB, enjoy high reputations at home and abroad. In addition, the CSCB has orchestrated various science education activities for the general public, which have been well received by the broad social media.

Significantly, the CSCB has contributed to the advancement of cell biology research in China as well as in the Asia-Pacific region. In 1982, it became a member of the International Federation for Cell Biology (IFCB), and in 1988 it initiated the Asian-Pacific Organization for Cell Biology (APOCB).
