The New Horizons in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education Conference, organised by the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB), the Federation European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) and the Weizmann Institute of Science will take place on 5-8 September 2017 in Rehovot, Israel, before the FEBS 2017 Congress in Jerusalem, Israel, 10-14 September 2017

The programme of the IUBMB-FEBS Conference on Education consists of plenary lectures, mini-symposia, workshops, and poster sessions, covering significant  topics on biochemistry and molecular biology education, from the level of primary and secondary school, going through BSc, MSc, PhD and post doctoral levels.

IUBMB and FEBS seek to provide a think-tank setting in which to draw up ideas to improve the current approach to teaching these subjects, and to generate a series of recommendations to be shared with the educational community.

We look forward to the participation of colleagues, and students from all over the world involved and interested in teaching and learning of biochemistry and molecular biology education, having the opportunity of contributing to “the way we teach and what we teach”.
