WELCOME TO THE NEW IUBMB WEBSITE
The International Union of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology is pleased to launch a newly redesigned website. We hope you like the improved format and find it easy to access all the information you need about the Union. Please note that some specific categories are not fully up-to-date; this will be rectified in the coming days.
Welcome to IUBMB
The International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology - founded in 1955 - unites biochemists and molecular biologists in 75 countries that belong to the Union as an Adhering Body or Associate Adhering Body represented by a biochemical society, a national research council or an academy of sciences. The Union is devoted to promoting research and education in biochemistry and molecular biology throughout the world and gives particular attention to areas where the subject is still in its early development. It achieves this in several ways.
IUBMB Misson Statement
IUBMB seeks to advance the international molecular life sciences community by:
- Promoting interactions across the diversity of endeavours in the molecular life sciences

- Creating pathways for young scientists to fulfil their potential
- Providing evidence-based advice on public policy
- Promoting the values, standards and ethics of science and the free and unhampered movement of scientists of all nations.
