International ABRF Committee

Being an international association is a critical and continuing focus of ABRF activity. The goal of the iABRF Committee is to explore ways of facilitating and expanding the international scope of the ABRF. This includes identifying ways that the ABRF can best encourage the establishment and growth of core facility organizations and meetings around the world, and on ways that the ABRF can best interact and coordinate with such organizations and meetings.
