IUBMB Advanced Schools

IUBMB has established the concept of promoting and sponsoring Advanced Schools in Asia, Africa and Central/South America. Advanced training of Ph.D. students and junior postdocs in the field of biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology is at the basis of a sustained scientific development in these areas. Europe has realized such a goal with the institution of the Spetses Schools, an already classical Institution that has contributed to a high degree to the scientific development of basic biological sciences in Europe. The goal of this project is to offer similar opportunities to junior scientists working not only in Europe, but in all geographical regions of the world.


For meetings in Europe, IUBMB automatically covers the expense for use of the “IUBMB/Brian Clark lecture hall” in the month of May for Spetses island, Greece for the organization of Special Meetings, Symposia, Advanced Schools etc. Please contact the Chair of the Committee for Education & Training, Dr LIM Yang Mooi for further details.
