The Society is very pleased to announce the signing of an International Associate Membership Agreement with the Chinese Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (CSBMB). It is hoped that this initiative will strengthen links between the two societies and the molecular bioscience communities in the UK and China as a whole.
The agreement includes benefits such as offering reciprocal member-rate registration fees for members at the other society’s conferences, annual sponsorship of an ‘International BS/CSBMB Lecture’ and annual support of three Biochemical Society postgraduate or undergraduate members to attend the International Advanced Summer School for Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology in China.
The agreement was initially discussed in March when staff and Officers from the Biochemical Society visited Beijing for the Biochemical Journal’s first Editorial Board meeting to be held in China. The agreement was then formalised by an official signing during the recent FEBS Congress in St Petersburg.
