The Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Mission & Vision

The Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, HDBMB, is a non-profit scientific and professional organization gathering people interested in molecular life sciences, including biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, molecular genetics and evolution, clinical biochemistry, and molecular medicine in context of research, education and application. The Society seeks to promote, encourage and support biochemistry and molecular biology as well as all molecular life sciences throughout Croatia.

Key Activities

  • The Annual Award of the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology for Young Scientists

The most recent HDBMB Congress, HDBMB2019 – CROSSROADS IN LIFE SCIENCES, was held from 25th to 28th September 2019 in Lovran, Croatia.


HDBMB was established in 1976 as Croatian Biochemical Society, shortly after the Second FEBS Meeting (Vienna, 1973). However, the Society has its roots in the Biochemical Section, formed in 1956 within the Croatian Chemical Society, established in 1927.

HDBMB became a member of FEBS in 1992.


All 441 members of the HDBMB are Croatian citizens (Croatian citizenships). However, many of them live in other countries within or outside the “FEBS community” and Europe. HDBMB accepts non-residental scientists as its members.
