What We Do
Connecting and growing the Fibrinogen research community.
Promote Scientific Knowledge & Organize Scientific Workshops
The IFRS functions principally to promote scientific knowledge on fibrinogen and organize the International Fibrinogen Workshops which meet in alternate years. The meetings are open to all investigators and scientists including physicians with a clinical or basic research interest in fibrinogen. These colloquia provide a forum for collegial presentations and discussions of new findings and perspectives. Many collaborations and friendships have been kindled at previous Workshops, and our goal is to continue this tradition. Members of the IFRS receive reduced registration fees for the Workshop, a reduced subscription rate for Blood Coagulation and Fibrinolysis (BC&F). The IFRS Constitution, which was revised in 2010, is available here.
Growing the Community of Scientists
Annual dues are $40. Optional subscriptions to BC&F is $386.00 for Domestic, EU, or non-EU countries. Total membership and subscription is $441.00. Students can join at no cost with a written statement of status, and signed by their research advisor sent to the IFRS office.

Meetings & Workshops
25th International Fibrinogen Workshop
June 3 -7, 2018
Winston-Salem, North Carolina (USA)
The 25th International Fibrinogen Workshop will be held at the Graylyn International Conference Center of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem (USA) from June 3rd to June 7th, 2018. For the first time, it will be held jointly with the 3rd International Factor XIII Workshop. The latest advances in basic, clinical and bioengineering research relating to Fibrinogen and Factor XIII will be presented by international leaders in these fields. This biannual conference is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas, learn about recent progress and become inspired.
