The 2019 international fall conference of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) is organized in cooperation with the German Society for Cell Biology (DGZ). Please note that the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to July 31, 2019!

We kindly request the active participation of young researchers by submitting scientific contributions by July 31st at

Young GBM members who will present a poster at the conference can apply for a travel grant until July 31st.

Topics covered at the GBM / DGZ fall conference 2019 will include cancer, neurodegeneration, immunity and metabolism, as well as the molecular mechanism of autophagy.

We expect that this conference will explore new collaborative opportunities to enhance our understanding of molecular mechanisms of age-related human diseases, ultimately aiming to develop rational therapies targeting e.g. autophagy in particular pathological conditions.

On the evening preceding the conference, we will have a Scientific Outreach session with an open public lecture to be held in German.

During the conference prestigious awards, including the Otto Warburg Medal, will be given and special keynote lectures will highlight the main topics of the conference.

Please save the date and join us in Tübingen!

GBM – The German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

With about 5200 members from institutes of higher education, research centers and industry the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) is the leading body of bioscience experts in Germany. Steeped in tradition the GBM can look back on a long history reaching back to the nineteenth century. Its work focuses on one of the most dynamic and promising research fields of our time: the molecular biosciences in all of its manifestations like biochemistry, molecular biology, and molecular medicine. The GBM hosts scientific meetings and conferences including the annual Mosbacher Kolloquium, the biennial GBM Fall Meeting and the GBM study group conferences. It supports students and the next generation of scientists, confers awards and honors, and takes part in trade fairs and conferences. The GBM represents the interests of all who work and research in the dynamic and promising disciplines combining chemistry, medicine, and biology – from first year students to heads of institutes, from junior scientists to Nobel Prize winners – and promotes research and teaching, the implementation of scientific findings in biotechnology and medicine, and their publication. The international GBM meetings are a platform for sharing information on the latest developments in molecular biosciences with leading experts on the represented sectors. The network of contacts extends to all German universities and a large number of major research centers.
