Mission & Vision
The goal of the Belgian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) is to promote biochemistry and molecular biology in Belgium.
The goal of promoting biochemistry and molecular biology in Belgium is pursued by organizing, at a rate of 3 to 4 times per year, scientific meetings or congresses which are focused on a specific subject of interest to the members. Expert scientists are invited for keynote lectures. Participation by younger members is stimulated by the organisation of poster sessions and the publication of the abstracts prior to the meeting on the web. In view of the bi-lingual nature of Belgium all meetings are conducted in English.
BMB awards every year the BMB Young Scientist Award for the best scientific presentation made by a young biochemist in one of its meetings.
The Society was established on 12th January 1952, and became a member of FEBS in 1964.
BMB has approx. 500 paying members (2005). BMB accepts non-residential scientists as members.
