    If you are a member or friend of the Society of Nematologists (SON), this is your Foundation!  Nematodes are the most abundant and among the most amazing animals on earth. Nathan A. Cobb was one of the first to appreciate this fact as the “Father of American Nematology” .  He once said, "If all the matter in the universe except nematodes were swept away, our world would still be recognizable, and if, as disembodied spirits, we could then investigate it, we should find its mountains, hills, vales, rivers, lakes, and oceans represented by a film of nematodes.”

The Nathan A. Cobb Nematology Foundation provides all nematologists and friends the opportunity to build self-sustaining endowments for the advancement of nematology.  The endowments are used to support student travel to our meetings and important nematology projects that are beyond the normal resources of the Society of Nematologists.

Please take a moment to explore this website and learn how the Nathan A. Cobb Nematology Foundation is working to “promote nematology worldwide”.  We hope you will take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Foundation by supporting projects of interest to you. Remember also that the current Foundation projects were conceived by SON members who worked with the Foundation’s Executive Committee to make them a reality.  Your ideas about how to meet the challenges and opportunities facing nematology are important.  We look forward to helping you implement them.

Thank you for your support of nematology!
