The European Cell Death Organization (ECDO) was founded in 1994 and has currently more than 200 members representing all major research groups in Europe, but also from non-European countries.
The main aims of ECDO are
- To share information on current developments in the field of cell death research
- To facilitate scientific links between and among the participating laboratories
- To assist the mobility of students and researches between institutions (within and across national borders)
- To form interest groups in relation to various topics of cell death research
