Welcome to the International Federation for Adipose Therapeutics and Science (IFATS)

We are the official leading source for information regarding adipose biology and related technology.

IFATS is a non-profit scientific society that promotes the exchange of information among researchers.  The Society does not endorse, certify, or otherwise provide recommendations about any specific treatments or practitioners. Membership in the Society does not involve a review of treatments offered by the member.

Our Objectives
To bring together as members, professionals of the science, medical and industry areas for productive collaborations around the adipose tissue research in all its possible fields.

To create a platform where our members can collaborate actively, discuss, comment and share information which may be directly translated to therapeutic applications.

IFATS is currently the world’s only interdisciplinary fat tissue society. We are committed to serve as the premier global incubator in the field of fat applied technology.

Our Areas of Interest
IFATS current scientific areas of interest relate to facilitating the development of treatments for excess body fat, the generation of new fat tissue for reconstruction after cancer or birth-related defects and the use of adipose tissue as a source of mesenchymal stem cells that have the potential to regenerate and repair different body tissues.

The Benefits of Membership

IFATS is the premier global scientific society for adipose derived stem cell biology and applications in regenerative medicine. We draw members from around the globe, spanning disciplines of reconstructive surgery, cardiovascular biology, neurosciences, orthopedic surgery, endocrinology, developmental biology, biomaterials, bioengineering, cell therapy, stem cell biology, tissue engineering, and many others interested in regenerative medicine. Our annual international meeting features the best cutting edge scientific work in the field of adipose stem cell research and adipose biology applied to clinical problems.

Join Today

15th Annual Meeting - Miami Beach

Plan to join us on November 30 - December 3 at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel for the most comprehensive meeting on the science and practice of fat grafting.

This event has a unique, deep, and board perspective that is just not evident at other plastic surgery meetings on fat grafting. Panels on subjects ranging from basic science, the mechanics of adipose tissue messaging via exosomes, and clinical variations of fat grafting not familiar to most plastic surgeons are featured.
