About the Organizers
The (German) Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie, GBM) is the association of Molecular Life Sciences.
The aim of the GBM is to promote basic and applied research as well as education in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular medicine.
As the german constituent society of the Federation of the European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) and the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) it is an active member of the worldwide scientific community and open for colleagues from other countries.
DECHEMA the Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology brings together experts from a wide range of disciplines, institutions and generations to stimulate scientific exchange in chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. We identify and evaluate emerging technological trends and facilitate the transfer of research results into industrial applications.
DECHEMA is the hub of an interdisciplinary network of topic-oriented committees, organizing events and professional development courses for all who are interested in a specialized subject area.
The German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB) has set the goal to establish Synthetic Biology as a key discipline and to serve as the association for this young research area in Germany.
To achieve this goal, GASB is organizing events like conferences and workshops, is providing a platform for dialogue within the scientific community as well as with the society and is taking position for Synthetic Biology in Germany.
We aim to foster responsible research and applications in Synthetic Biology as well as the dialogue in a social as well as a political context.
The Centre for Synthetic Biology is an example of how TU Darmstadt is breaking new ground in research fields promising high future potential. Our centres and profile areas are the cornerstones of interdisciplinary research at our university.
With the launch of the Centre for Synthetic Biology, TU Darmstadt commits to synthetic biology as a key research focus. The interdisciplinary centre integrates expertise from the faculties of biology, chemistry and electrical engineering and information technology, material sciences and physics, mechanical engineering and social sciences.
