Founded in 1958 the POLISH BIOCHEMICAL SOCIETY
aims to promote and support all aspects of Biochemistry in Poland.
The POLISH BIOCHEMICAL SOCIETY has something to offer to everyone interested in molecular and cellular life sciences, including:
- clinical biochemistry,
- molecular biology,
- molecular medicine,
To achieve these aims, the POLISH BIOCHEMICAL SOCIETY
- holds national and international scientific conferences, symposia, meetings, discussions, lectures and workshops, organized by the Society's General Board, Regional Branches and Interest Groups,
- publishes scientific journals, books and monographs which cover all the aspects of Biochemistry and its applications,
- maintains close links with related societies in Poland and abroad.
The POLISH BIOCHEMICAL SOCIETY is a member of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), the European Federation of Biotechnology ( the Society's Biotechnology Interest Group), the International Bioenergetics Group (IUBMB / IUPAB), and European Society for the Study of Purine and Pyrimidine Metabolism in Man (European Purine Club).
Ordinary membership, open to anyone having published at least one original paper in the field of biochemistry; Emeritus membership, offered to ordinary member after retirement from full-time employment; Honorary membership, awarded by the Society Plenary Assembly to distinguished scientists.
- Bioenergetics Group
- Biotechnology Group
- Clinical Biochemistry Group
- Connective Tissue Group
- Education Group
- Glycobiology Group
- Nucleic Acid Group
- Purines and Pyrimidines Interest Group
REGULAR SCIENTIFIC MEETINGS:
- The Annual Meeting of the Polish Biochemical Society, hosted by one of the regional branches of the Society each year (600 - 800 participants). 44th Meeting will take place in Lodz in September 2009.
- Parnas Conference - Polish-Ukrainian Biochemical Conference dedicated to Jakub Karol Parnas, hosted in turns by the Polish Biochemical Society or Ukrainian Biochemical Society, every second year. Six Conferences were organized so far, in: 1996 (Lviv, Ukraine), 1998 (Gdańsk, Poland), 2000 (Lviv, Ukraine), 2002 (Wrocław, Poland), 2005 (Kyiv, Ukraine) and 2007 (Kraków). The next onference will take place in Jalta (Ukraine) in 2009.
