The ISFP was founded to stimulate scientific research relating to any aspect of proteolysis which is relevant to human biology and pathology.


ISFP General Assembly

The 2017 General Assembly of the ISFP will be held during the ISTH congress (Berlin, July 8-13)

Travel grants

Travel grants for young investigators under 40 years to attend the 2018 ISFP congress in Edinburgh will be available through an endowment of Life Sciences Research Partners.

Young Investigator Awards

To honour the contributions of Désiré Collen to research on fibrinolysis, proteolysis and thrombolysis, the International Society for Fibrinolysis and Proteolysis (ISFP) has decided to create "D. Collen Young Investigator Awards", that will be awarded every two years at the occasion of the congress of the ISFP.

The following criteria were set:

  • Restricted to PhD/young post-doc level (under 40 years).
  • Five abstracts submitted to the congress are selected by the scientific program committee (on the basis of grading and contents). The first authors of submitted abstracts will have the option to indicate whether they wish to compete for one of these awards.
  • The selected abstracts will be presented in a special oral communications session.
  • After this session, the scientific program committee will select one abstract as winner, receiving €2500, whereas the 4 others will each receive €1000.

For more information, contact the Executive Director of the ISFP.
