The Future is BioMolecular: The Biomolecular Horizons Congress

With several key deadline coming up, the preparations for the Biomolecular Horizons Congress (in Melbourne, Australia, 22–26, Sept 2024) are hotting up. Explore the options for submitting an abstract, applying to their Young Scientists Program, or securing a travel fellowships. More details below.
The Future is BioMolecular: The Biomolecular Horizons Congress

The Biomolecular Horizons: Discover, Create, Innovate Congress will be held in Melbourne, Australia, 22-26, Sept 2024. It will incorporate the 26th Congress of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB), the 17th Congress of the Federation of Asian & Oceanian Biochemists & Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB) and the 22nd ComBio Conference (ComBio).

Our by-line is: “The Future is BioMolecular”; and the stellar scientific Program will highlight themes, such as RNA Technology, Gene Editing, Synthetic Biology and Climate Change. This global forum will bring together renowned scientists from across the world, from Nobel Laureates to early career scientists. An outstanding array of international presenters will lead the program, which will feature 6 plenary speakers, 25 keynote speakers, 77 symposia, award sessions, hot topics, lightning talks, posters, technical workshops and satellite meetings. Visit the website for more information and to secure your place in this global dialogue. Abstract deadline: 12 Mar 2024.

BMH2024 will be preceded by a Young Scientists Program (YSP) in the Macedon Ranges, Australia, 20–22 Sept 2024, for about 35 PhD candidates and early-career researchers (<10 years post-PhD) for a 2-day scientific and networking program. Application deadline: 29 Feb 2024. FEBS will sponsor the participation of two outstanding PhD students or postdoctoral researchers from FEBS countries to attend both the YSP and BMH2024 (to a maximum of €1400). Candidates for this FEBS sponsorship must be members of a FEBS Constituent Society.

The IUBMB will offer travel fellowships to support participation from international PhD students and postdocs of less than 10 years post-PhD to participant in the Congress. Application deadline: 29 Feb 2024.

For our international delegates, why not stay longer – a great opportunity to explore Australia. For more information view the BMH2024 website or follow us on X @BMH2024Melb.
