BMB Thailand has held various activities for the advancement of biochemistry and molecular biology since its foundation, beginning with annual local workshops and training courses researchers, students and teachers between 1975-2006. Then, the first Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Conference at national level was started in 2007, co-organized by the BMB Thailand and the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University. The conference then expanded to an International Conference, co-organized by BMB Thailand and Department(s) of Biochemistry from various universities in an alternate years. The biennial BMB conferences are some of the largest bioscience conferences in Thailand with many participants including professors, researchers, and students. The conference aims to create opportunities for scientists and entrepreneurs to share and to exchange their experience with others to promote creative discussion and a collaborative environment.
The JS-BMB Award (supported by Jisnuson Svasti Endowment Fund) has been given to outstanding mid-career biochemists in alternate years since 2009, while Young BMB Awards have been given to young BMB researchers since 2011. The Awardees will present their work at the BMB Conferences. In 2016, the Thai Young BMB Camp for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists was initiated in conjunction with the BMB Conference.
This year in November 2023, the 30th FAOBMB Conference will be held in conjunction with the 8th BMB Conference, as a special event celebrating the 50th Anniversary of BMB Thailand. The Conference will be organized fully onsite after the long break of COVID-19 pandemic, and will offer plenary and invited lectures, symposia, workshop, posters and oral presentations, as well as exhibition and technical talks. Both FAOBMB and BMB Thailand fellowships will be available for attending the conference. Prior to the conference, a special Young Biochemists and Molecular Biologists Program will be organized to provide opportunities for young biochemists and molecular biologists to expand their perspectives through inspiring talks by renowned scientists and opportunities to develop international networks.
