In 2015, the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) joins forces with the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) to organize the 40th FEBS Congress from Saturday July 4th to Thursday July 9th, 2015, at the Estrel Convention Center in Berlin, Germany.
With this joint congress, GBM and FEBS expect to bring together a wide range of researchers from all across Europe and further afield to explore ‘The Biochemical Basis of Life’.
The organizing team around Prof. Volker Haucke (FMP, Berlin) created an outstanding program: The congress will cover the entire spectrum of molecular life sciences with symposia on ‘Mechanisms of Gene Expression’, ‘Membranes, Receptors & Bioenergetics’, ‘Structural Biology and Biophysics’, ‘Systems Biology, Bioinformatics & Theoretical Biology’, ‘Molecular Neuroscience’ and ‘From Chemical Biology to Molecular Medicine’.
In addition, there will be sessions and plenary discussions, e.g. on the future of scientific publishing, women in science, science & society, careers and education, as well as the Young Scientists’ Forum (YSF) immediately preceding the congress to promote interactions between pre- and post-doctoral scientists.
The program is available at www.febs2015.org. Also, registration and abstract submission are possible via the congress website.
