About KSBMB

KSBMB Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

As the academic society with the longest history in Korean biochemistry, the Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology aims to promote the advancement of science and technology as well as the improvement of human health by contributing to the academic development and distribution of biochemistry and molecular biology.

The Society was founded as ‘The Korean Biochemical Society’ in 1948. In 1995, it was renamed to ‘The Korean Society of Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’ to keep pace with changes in the academic development of the times. In January 2010, The Korean Society of Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the two largest societies in biochemistry and molecular biology in Korea, consolidated under the name of the Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in January 2010.


As the largest academic society currently, with 12 thousand members in the associated biosectors, the Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology holds academic conferences more than 5 times a year and issues 3 journals and webzines. In addition, the Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has won the medical grand award from the Korean Academy of Medical Sciences 4 times, winning the award for 3 consecutive years between 2007 and 2009. It is positioned as a representative society leading the Korean biosectors.


‘Experimental and Molecular Medicine (EMM)’, the international journal of the Society, is the first biomedical science journal in Korea and was selected as an excellent international journal by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies and the National Research Foundation of Korea. The journal was evaluated and accepted for coverage in the Web of Science (Science Citation Index; SCI) by the Institute for Science Information (ISI) in 2002. In addition, EMM joined the Nature Publishing Group in 2013 and became a global journal.

As a Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) covered journal, ‘Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Reports (BMB Reports)’ is being issued in a new journal format with short reports and delivers new scientific findings and knowledge to readers in a fast and timely manner. BMB Reports is the first to adopt the new journal format in Asia.


For international academic exchange, the Society officially joined the Federation of Asia and Oceania Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB) in 1973 and the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) in 1982. The Society promoted the globalization of Korean life sciences by inviting the 5th FAOB Congress to Seoul in 1989 and successfully hosted the IUBMB Seoul Conference with the theme of Molecular & Cellular Networks in 1999 as well as the FAOBMB Conference in Seoul in 2007. The 24th IUBMB & The 15th FAOBMB Congress was held in Seoul to provide opportunities for research-related exchanges between biochemistry and molecular biologists around the world and domestic researchers, contributing to the development of global biochemistry and molecular biology.


In addition, since 2005, the Society has held life science forums for the public to transmit life science information to the public. It has participated in the science and technology EXPO since 2002 to assist the career development of students in science and engineering. The Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology continues to work to raise public awareness of the life sciences.


Welcome Remark

Dear Colleagues and Members of KSBMB,

Firstly, I wish you all for a very prosperous and happy New Year 2020!!

It is my great pleasure to cordially invite you to the International Conference 2020 of Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (KSBMB) on August 24th-26th in Seoul, Korea.

The KSBMB in this year is celebrating its 72th anniversary and it has grown up now hugely as one of the biggest leading academic societies in the field of Life Sciences and Medicine in Korea, owing to the faithful devotion of the past presidential committees, staffs and ever unsparing participation of the society members over the years.

2020 KSBMB International Conference this year will be held from August 24 to August 26, at Grand Hilton in Seoul, Korea. Under the theme of “KSBMB: Knowledge & Science, the last Bastion for Mankind's Battle”, KSBMB will be hosting 5 worldly recognized plenary lectures including and also 21 symposia covering various research fields, poster sessions and a large numbers of exhibitions of high-tech equipments and technologies by domestic and global companies in order to interact and learn the new trends of change in various areas of science and technologies.

I am very confident that the KSBMB International Conference 2020 will become a venue for learning and communicating with the latest research results, information sharing and learning so to move together forward in a more mutually beneficial direction.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, thus I would like to cordially invite you all to this international research festival and also I hope that this upcoming 2020 KSBMB Conference would be a memorable and fruitful event to your research career.

Sincerely,

Ji Chang You, Professor
KSBMB President

FAOBMB, IUBMB

For international academic exchange, the Society officially joined the Federation of Asia and Oceania Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB) in 1973 and the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) in 1982. The Society promoted the globalization of Korean life sciences by inviting the 5th FAOB Congress to Seoul in 1989 and successfully hosted the IUBMB Seoul Conference with the theme of Molecular & Cellular Networks in 1999 as well as the FAOBMB Conference in Seoul in 2007. The 24th IUBMB & The 15th FAOBMB Congress was held in Seoul to provide opportunities for research-related exchanges between biochemistry and molecular biologists around the world and domestic researchers, contributing to the development of global biochemistry and molecular biology.
