NEW: Preliminary Scientific Programme and information about Young Scientist Forum

On behalf of the entire organizing committee, we welcome the participants of the X IUBMB Conference in Salvador da Bahia in Brazil. It will be a joint event with the XXXVI Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SBBq) also be sponsored by the Panamerican Association for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (PABMB).

The main focus of the Conference will be the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Infectious and Parasitic Diseases, an excellent choice for the first IUBMB Conference in Latin America.

We are actively working to put together a program of the highest possible quality and we are grateful to all the members of the International Advisory Committee who are sharing with us the burden and responsibility for selecting excellent speakers and topics.

The congress aims to offer a broad overview of the frontiers in the research and recent developments in all aspects of the Biochemistry of Infectious Diseases, currently the leading area of research that may uncover new views and targets for the development of therapeutic and prevention measures.

In keeping with IUBMB  recomendations, we are making significant efforts to raise funds for allow the participation of the highest possible number of young researchers. Their presence is important for the diffusion of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and its many associated areas of research.

This is fully in line with one of the most important traditions of SBBq, which substantial attendance of young researchers to its Annual Meetings. Also, we intend to find funding to support the attendance of a number of senior participants from less favoured regions.

A congress of this scale is obviously attractive for commercial sponsors and exhibitors, whose participation is synergistic and vital for the success of the event. Continuing with the tradition of SBBq meetings, we will have an extensive commercial exhibit, bringing to the participants the best in innovative tools for research.


We trust that all the participants will fully exploit the unique experience of Brazilian Culture, History and People, as well as its beaches, tropical and rain forests, music and food, in the beautiful and breathtaking city of Salvador da Bahia.

Benvindos ao Brasil!!!
