Welcome Message from President of IUBMB

As President of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, it is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you to the 2014 IUBMB conference in Taipei. This is an exciting time for biochemistry and molecular biology, and the organizers have assembled a terrific cast of speakers and and an array of topics that highlights cutting-edge research throughout our diverse discipline. If you have never been to Taiwan, this is also an opportunity for a trip you will remember your whole life. The island boasts Taroko Gorge, where eagles ride the thermal currents above the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, and the national park that surrounds it. The National Palace Museum in Taipei is one of the truly great museums of the world, with more than half a million pieces encompassing 8,000 years of Chinese history. I could list many other wonders, but don’t just read about them, come see them for yourself. Join me and biochemists and molecular biologists from around the world for fun and fellowship as we celebrate the excitement of science and the beauty of Chinese culture.

Welcome Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The first time IUBMB annual conference comes to Taiwan. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to extend to you a cordial invitation to participate in the 15th IUBMB-24th FAOBMB-TSBMB International Conference, being held from October 21-26, 2014 at Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.

The 2014 conference, jointly organized by International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB), Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB), Taiwan Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (TSBMB) and Academia Sinica, has the theme of “Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Transition: from Basic to Translational”. For several decades, many breakthrough discoveries in biochemistry and molecular biology have contributed comprehensively to the advances of understanding the fundamental biological processes, which, in turn, have set the pathway for translating basic scientific discovery into application. In line with this theme, all scientific sessions will focus on emerging research areas or technologies in basic scientific discovery, as well as new synergies in translational sciences. The program has been selected not only to capture a snapshot of the state-of-art findings in these challenging areas but also to fuel the translation of life sciences.

In addition to the excitement of breakthrough discoveries, the conference also provides a forum for sharing your insightful research, as well as a great opportunity to network with your fellow professionals and establish interdisciplinary partnerships. Please join us for what will be a wonderful experience on the cutting-edge sciences.

We look forward to welcoming you to Taiwan, Formosa – the beautiful island, for an inspiring and vibrant conference you will never forget.
