A Biochemical Society Independent Meeting


The 2016 Meeting will be held in Maynooth University - Dates TBC 


Protein interactions are a common theme spanning molecular and cell biological processes   in   biomedicine   and   biotechnology   that   underpin   many   areas of research.  

The  Irish  Area  Section  of  the  Biochemical Society  (IASBS)  Annual Meeting  for  2015 brings  together  a  range  of  Irish  and international  speakers  to stimulate  fresh perspectives  and  novel avenues  of research for  the  molecular biosciences.
