Society for In Vitro Biology (SIVB) was founded in 1946 as the Tissue Culture Association. Since then, SIVB has provided scientific interest and educational programs to understand the use of cells, tissues, and organs. The mission of the SIVB is to foster the exchange of knowledge related to the in vitro biology of cells, tissues, and organs from plants, insects, animals, and humans. The scientific focus is on biological research, development, and applications of significance to science and society. The mission is accomplished through the Society's journals, publications, national and local conferences, meetings and workshops, and support of teaching initiatives in cooperation with education institutions.

The SIVB organization is composed of scientists interested in the study of cells, tissues, organs, and tissue-engineered biological products. The scientists are composed of many different levels of training and in different stages of diverse biotechnology careers. Membership is comprised of approximately 2,000 scientists representing 45 countries. Any person interested in the mission of the Society may become a member upon application and payment of annual dues.

The Society holds a national scientific meeting and Congress each year. Every fourth (4) year, the meeting is an International World Congress. Section members of the Society serve as program committee members. The annual Congress symposia and workshops are conducted and presented by members and invited scientists. Scientific programs focus on issues pertinent to Vertebrate, Invertebrate, Plant, and Cellular Toxicology in vitro research giving participants a unique learning experience on animal and plant cell culture and biotechnology.
