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.
