The Organizing Committee

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to cordially invite you to the 24th IUBMB and 15th FAOBMB Congress here in Seoul, Korea on June 4th~8th, 2018.

As you all know, the IUBMB Congress is one of the biggest international research conferences in basic biological science. Therefore, in this congress, there will be more than 25 symposia covering various research fields from virus to human cancers. Numerous renowned scientists from all over the world including Nobel laureates will be invited for plenary as well as special lectures. In addition, numerous workshops or satellite meetings introducing novel biotechnologies will also be given. In these symposia and lectures, new findings in both basic research and applied technology will be introduced and discussed. Thus, the main purpose of the IUBMB congress is to provide a platform for biomedical researchers or students to socialize and exchange valuable information. In addition, I would like to encourage young scientists to apply the Travel grants as well as the Young Scientist Program. We plan to have more than 150 recipients.

The venue, COEX is a large convention complex equipped with shops, movie theaters and many indoor attractions, located in the heart of Seoul. Considering, Seoul is one of the most attractive places to visit in the world. I am sure that you will also enjoy the dynamic and exciting atmosphere of the Seoul metropolitan.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to cordially invite you all to this international research festival and also I hope that this upcoming 2018 IUBMB congress will be a memorable and fruitful event to your research career.
