The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York University hosted the second Art Bio Matters (ABM) conference virtually September 22 - 24, 2021.

ABM aims to provide a stimulating forum in which to explore current and new directions in the study of biological materials found in cultural heritage collections through a biannual meeting and a dedicated website. A key aspect of the forum is the opportunity to discuss research at any stage of completion among a balanced community of experts in a format designed to promote collegial dialogue and debate.
