We are excited to highlight new research from the IUBMB Journals: IUBMB Life, BioFactors, Biotechnology and Applied Biochemistry, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education.
Please also consider submitting your own research to the IUBMB Journals. You can expect to work with distinguished Editorial Board members and benefit from worldwide circulation and readership through our publishing partnership with Wiley. For more information about the journal and submissions, feel free to peruse the IUBMB journals website.
For now, please enjoy highlights of our recent content. Happy reading!
Did you know? Wiley and Jisc just signed an agreement that allows UK authors to publish Open Access in the IUBMB Journals at no cost to them.
Thanks to a partnership our publisher Wiley has signed with Jisc, certain UK institutions now have full access to journals published by Wiley, including the IUBMB Journals. Further, the partnership enables authors at participating UK institutions to publish open access at no cost to them in the IUBMB Journals. Payment of the associated Article Publication Charges (APC) would be covered via the partnership, and authors will not need to cover the APCs from their own pockets.
We are also delighted to announce that the inaugural award will be presented to Élyse Fischer, a Gates Cambridge PhD Scholar in the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, University of Cambridge, in the laboratory of Professor David Barford. Her research is directed towards understanding the molecular mechanisms of spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) activation using a variety of structural and biochemical techniques. Elyse also happens to be the grand daughter of Bill Whelan’s lifelong friend, biochemist Edmond Fischer, who received the Nobel Prize for reversible phosphorylation.
Elyse will be presenting her research at the IUBMB Whelan Young Investigator talk at the Young Scientists Program in Vimeiro, Portugal, 6th to 9th July 2022 directly preceding the 25th IUBMB Congress/FEBS/PAPMB meeting in Lisbon, July 9th-14th, 2022.
We are very pleased to announce a new Award in honor of William “Bill” J. Whelan to recognize his lifelong commitment to training the future of biochemistry. The award will go to a highly promising young investigator in biochemistry or molecular biology with special attention to geographic diversity. The Awardee will deliver a lecture at the Young Scientists Program held in conjunction with the Triennial Congress of the IUBMB and be invited to contribute a review article to IUBMB Life, along with receiving an IUBMB award cube and certificate.
IUBMB is pleased to launch two new activities in 2021
IUBMB Travel Fellowships:
The IUBMB Travel Fellowships are designed to support biochemistry and molecular biology trainees (graduate students and postdoctoral fellows), from countries that are full or associate members of IUBMB to travel to and attend meetings in the IUBMB region. Applicants are required to present a poster or oral presentation in order to be considered for a fellowship award.
This fellowship honors the legacy of the metabolic maps created by Donald Nicholson, who in 1996 gave the copyright of the maps to the IUBMB. We are pleased to collaborate with MilliporeSigma, with whom we have an agreement to secure the future of the maps, to provide virtual meeting registration to trainees in biochemistry and molecular biology.
