About the Partner

The Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (KSBMB) is Korea’s leading society in the field of biochemistry. Through support and contribution to the progress of the study in the field, the ultimate goal of KSBMB is to improve the health and welfare of humankind.

The society was established in 1948 as the “Korea Biochemistry Society” and renamed as the “Korean Society for Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology” in 1995 to keep in step with the change and progress in the field. In 2010, the society combined with the “Korea Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Society” (established in 1967) to form the “Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology”. Currently, KSBMB is the largest society with approximately 15,000 members in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology in Korea.

To facilitate communication with international academics, KSBMB officially formed collaboration with the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) in 1982 and the Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB) in 1973. In 1989, KSBMB hosted the 5th FAOB Congress in Seoul, further communicating Korea’s presence on the global stage in the field of life sciences. KSBMB also hosted the IUBMB Seoul Conference under the title of “Molecular & Cellular Networks” in 1999 and FAOBMB Conference under the title of “Science and Technology for the Integration of Life” in 2007.
