26th IUBMB-17th FAOBMB Congress, Melbourne, Australia, 22-26 September 2024

September 22 @ 8:00 am - September 26 @ 5:00 pm




Biomolecular Horizons 2024, incorporating the 26th IUBMB-17th FAOBMB Congress, will be held in Melbourne, Australia, 22-26 September 2024.

This important forum will bring together three prestigious organisations, each with a strong history of attracting the Bioscience and Biotechnology communities to discuss and examine the latest developments and research:

  • 26th Congress of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB)
  • 17th Congress of the Federation of Asian & Oceanian Biochemists & Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB)
  • 22nd ComBio Conference (ComBio)

This will be the first time the IUBMB Congress will be held in Melbourne and only the third time in the Southern Hemisphere. It will join with FAOBMB and ComBio to create a truly global forum bringing together renowned scientists from across the world, from Nobel Laureates to early career scientists.

An outstanding array of international presenters will be leading the program. Visit the Congress website.
