International Associate Membership
The Society has International Associate Membership agreements with a number of societies outside the UK. The benefits of each agreement are based around areas of mutual interest to the Biochemical Society and the specific partnering society.
We also have international links with a number of societies, those of which are listed below.
FEBS seeks to promote, encourage and support biochemistry, molecular cell biology, molecular physics and related areas of science throughout Europe.
Membership of the Biochemical Society entitles you to apply for a FEBS Fellowship.
Federation of European Biochemical Societies Congress 2013, “Mechanisms in Biology”
July 6–11, 2013 | Saint Petersburg, Russia
FEBS 2013 Advanced Courses Programme
The IUBMB is devoted to promoting research and education in biochemistry and molecular biology throughout the world. The Biochemical Society is one of its 77 Adhering Bodies and actively participates in its activities.
The 22nd IUBMB Congress and 37th FEBS Congress - From single molecules to systems biology - was held in Sevilla, Spain 4 - 9 September 2012.
Lorne Conferences on Protein Structure and Function
Each year, the Biochemical Society and Lorne will each select and pay for two of their own outstanding early career researchers to attend a conference run by the partner organization.
The 2013 Young Investigator winners selected by Lorne are:
Dr Mihwa Lee, University of Western Australia, Perth who will attend the EMBO/Harden Conference - Helicases and nucleic acid translocase
Dr Dana Westphal, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne who will attend the Signalling 2013: from structure to function conference
Details of how to apply for Biochemical Society support to attend the Lorne Conference in 2014 will be available shortly.
The FAOBMB is one of 4 regional groupings of the IUBMB.
FAOBMB aims to work with its constituent members and the IUBMB to advance research, teaching and applications of biochemistry and molecular biology particularly in the Asia - Pacific region.
