Young Life Scientists Austria, ÖGMBT-YLSA

ÖGMBT-YLSA is the Junior Section of the Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology (ÖGMBT). It was set up in 2016 to support the career development and networking opportunities of students and young researchers in the molecular life sciences in Austria. ÖGMBT-YLSA organise and deliver their own activities under the supervision of their Society and all members of the Junior Section are members of ÖGMBT. ÖGMBT-YLSA are also part of the FEBS Junior Sections.

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.

Fiona Veira-McTiernan

Communications and Digital Platforms Associate, FEBS

I am the Communications and Digital Platforms Associate at FEBS, and I help manage content and use of online platforms and sites such as the FEBS Network, FEBS website and FEBS Congress website, but particularly on the FEBS Network. Previously I have managed the funding programmes of a number of UK research charities, mainly in the field of cancer. I have supported the income generation teams at those organisations with science communication, as well as developed e-learning resources for staff and students at the Institute of Cancer Research. I have a BSc in Biochemistry, an MSc in Nutrition and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics. After years in London I have now moved back to Spain, where I continue to work as a science communicator.
