GBM Fall Conference 2022 - The Molecular Basis of Life

The international fall conference of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM e.V.) will take place from September 14th to 16th 2022, at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. The conference will bring together a wide range of researchers from Germany and from across the globe.
GBM Fall Conference 2022 - The Molecular Basis of Life

The congress will cover the entire spectrum of molecular biosciences with topics on 

  • Biomolecules and their assemblies: from structure and dynamics to function
  • Multiscale biochemistry of membranes and membrane proteins
  • Energy for life - principles and diversity of biological energy conversion
  • Biophysical chemistry and cell biology of interfaces and functional phase separation
  • Computational biophysics and biology
  • Imaging molecules of life
  • New technologies for molecules in Life Sciences
  • Cell biology meets systems and synthetic biology
  • Signal transduction and diseases
  • Structure-function-relationships regulating signaling events
  • Supramolecular chemistry on proteins

As evident from this list of topics, not only protein-protein interactions are in the focus of the congress, but importantly the underlying dynamics that shape the interactions, networks and communication pathways. 

The goal of this conference is to bring together leading experts, students, young investigators and industry representatives to address recent developments and insights into the molecular basis of life and their consequences. 

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

Please save the date and join us in Düsseldorf!
