Mission & Vision
The mission of the ABMB in B&H is aimed at developing and ensuring high standards of education in the area of biochemistry, molecular biology and other related biomedical and natural sciences at all educational levels, with particular attention on lifelong learning. This is planned to be achieved through bringing together researchers in scientific and expert fields of biomedical and pure sciences with a biochemical and molecular biology orientation as well as other molecular science disciplines. Their collaborative work could be of particular importance in promotion of future research initiatives, especially in projects related to human health protection and environment protection.
Details will be added in due course.
Members of the ABMB in B&H are eligible for consideration for support for participation in FEBS events, through schemes such as the FEBS Congress Bursaries, FEBS Congress Hinari B scheme, FEBS Young Scientists’ Forum, and FEBS Youth Travel Fund grants for Advanced Courses.
