International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology | Wikipedia audio article


The International Union of Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology (IUBMB) is an international non-governmental organisation concerned with
biochemistry and molecular biology. Formed in 1955 as the International Union
of Biochemistry, the union has presently 77 member countries (as of 2008).IUBMB organizes
a triennial Congress of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and sponsors more frequent conferences,
symposia, educational activities and lectures. It publishes standards on biochemical nomenclature,
including enzyme nomenclature, in some cases jointly with the International Union of Pure
and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). IUBMB has instituted the Wood Whelan Research
fellowship scheme for budding researchers. It is considered as a prestigious award for
doctoral students. Candidates are selected based on a competitive
project proposal and reference letters. The award scheme provides opportunity to work
on a specified project in a different laboratory in a foreign country. It is associated with the journals Biochemistry
and Molecular Biology Education (formerly Biochemical Education), BioEssays, BioFactors,
Biotechnology and Applied Biochemistry, IUBMB Life, Molecular Aspects of Medicine and Trends
in Biochemical Sciences.==See also==
