The IUBMB Executive Committee is pleased to announce that the 26th IUBMB Congress will be held in Melbourne, Australia from September 22-26, 2024.
We invite you to join us at Biomolecular Horizons 2024: Discover, Create, Innovate to be held in Melbourne, Australia from 22-26 September 2024.
This important forum will bring together three prestigious congresses, each with a strong history of attracting the Bioscience and Biotechnology communities together to discuss and examine the latest developments and research:
• 26th Congress of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB)
• 17th Congress of the Federation of Asian & Oceanian Biochemists & Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB)

This will be the first time the IUBMB Congress will be held in Melbourne and only the third time in the Southern Hemisphere. It will join with FAOBMB and ComBio to create a truly global forum bringing together renowned scientists from across the world, from Nobel Laureates to early career scientists.
