ČSBMB, The Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The mission of the Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ČSBMB) is to promote, encourage and support biochemistry and molecular biology within the Czech Republic and also in the international context. Among its activities are the organization of scientific symposia and conferences, including the 2009 FEBS Congress, and the award of prizes for scientific contributions.
The ČSBMB was founded on February 23, 1956 as the Czechoslovak Biochemical Society. Since 1953 it existed as the Biochemical Section of the Czechoslovak Physiological Society. Since the Czechoslovak Republic was divided into two states on January 1, 1993, the same year the society followed suit and the Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Slovak Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology were formed, with both accepted as FEBS members at the FEBS Council meeting in Stockholm in 1993. The ČSBMB was among the 17 adhering societies that created FEBS on January 1, 1964.
