The French Society of Myology (SFM) was founded in 2002. Its aim is to promote myology in all its aspects (research, academia, university, public), to give it a national visibility, to disseminate scientific information, to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations, to reinforce its teaching and to establish close relations with peer Societies, particularly in Europe.
The means of action of the SFM are of 4 kinds:
- Organization of the Journées de la Société Française de Myology (annual congress)
- Publication of the Cahiers de myologie - Promotion of young researchers and clinicians by awarding prizes
- Promotion of actions around myology
