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 Mission 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 networks that transcend barriers of ethnicity, culture, gender and economic status
- 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.
In 2017, IUBMB Conferences and Symposia were replaced by IUBMB Focused Meetings. Up to three Focused Meetings will be supported per year in the amount of US$ 30,000-60,000. The deadline for applications to host an IUBMB Focused Meeting is June 1st for Focused Meetings to be held during the subsequent calendar year. Guidelines and Application and Report Forms are available on this website. Further information can be obtained from the Chair of the Committee on Congresses and Focused Meetings, Dr. Efstathios Gonos: email@example.com. Please note that triennial IUBMB Congresses will continue unchanged.
