The International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology unites scientists in 75 countries or regions through a society, national council, or academy of sciences.
The junior section of the Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ČSBMB Junior) is part of an extensive network of junior sections of national biochemical societies across Europe. The section aims to put together active young researchers and support the development of their personalities and their growing scientific careers. We meet this goal by organizing various scientific events, including workshops, webinars, lectures, or minor conferences. The vision of ČSBMB Junior is not only to provide connections and support but also to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation. Junior section members will get access to helpful information, manuals, and exercises that will help them with shaping their future careers in the field of research practice, as well as so-called soft skills. All the ČSBMB Junior members will further stay connected thanks to regular online and in-person meetings, therefore building a network of young biochemists and molecular biologists.

I write a blog called Total Internal Reflection about the human side of science. Postings are generally either opinion/commentary (either serious or silly) or "How To" pieces aimed at improving young scientists' soft skills.  A longer biography and manifesto are on the blog here.

Organising committee, FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE

Initially funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, the first four ENABLE conferences were held in the cities hosting the headquarters of the four entities leading the project: the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) in Barcelona, Spain; the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) in Nijmegen, The Netherlands; The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) in Copenhagen, Denmark; and the Scuola Europea di Medicina Molecolare (SEMM), in Milan, Italy. In this new cycle of conferences, FEBS, IUBMB and the four core ENABLE institutions have joined forces to share ENABLE best practices with other international research institutions. To this end, in addition to the four core research centres, other institutions can apply to become associated centres and host one of the events. For the 2024 event, FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE will actively search for an associated centre in a non-European country to ensure that one of the events is held on another continent.
'FEBS Communications' posts general items from the FEBS Network Team as well as news on FEBS events and other activities.
Roger S. Smith

MD/PhD Candidate, Northwestern University

I am training to become a physician scientist at Northwestern University. I am completing my PhD thesis work in the lab of Marc Mendillo, PhD. I am passionate about discovering the mechanistic basis of human diseases for the development of novel therapeutic strategies. I previously trained as a research technician under the mentorship of Romel Somwar, PhD in the lab of Marc Ladanyi, MD at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. During my undergraduate studies at the University of Notre Dame, I conducted research in the lab of Michael Ferdig, PhD.
