Organizations and Societies
International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The International Union of Biochemistry and olecular Biology - founded in 1955 - unites biochemists and molecular biologists in 77 countries that belong to the Union as an Adhering Body or Associate Adhering Body which is represented as a biochemical society, a national research council or an academy of sciences. The Union is devoted to promoting research and education in biochemistry and molecular biology throughout the world and gives particular attention to areas where the subject is still in its early development. It achieves this in several ways.
Every three years the Union sponsors an International Congress of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Co-sponsorship of these Congresses by Regional Organizations of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is an increasing trend. These Congresses are major international meetings where current research in all fields of biochemistry and molecular biology is considered. Thousands of individual research projects are presented in poster sessions and leading investigators from many nations survey their fields and describe their own
American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The American Society of Biological Chemists (ASBC) was founded on December 26th, 1906 at a meeting organized in New York City by John Jacob Abel of the Johns Hopkins University. The meeting was attended by 28 other biochemists, many of whom had participated in the launch of the Journal of Biological Chemistry in the previous year, and who were subsequently joined by an additional 52 “charter” members. The roots of the Society were in the American Physiological Society, which had been formed some 20 years earlier, and, prior to the founding of the ASBC, had provided the principal forum for the dissemination of American research on the chemical aspects of biology. Indeed, it was the sense, as most strongly espoused by Abel, that this outlet was no longer adequate to serve the rapidly growing experimentation in this area, which led directly to the creation of the ASBC. From this modest group of 81 scientists from North America, the Society (now called the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) has grown into one of the most important learned scientific societies with over 12,000 members from around the world.
The Pakistan Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The Pakistan Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology was founded in 1963 with the name as Pakistan Society of Biochemists. Prof. M.I.D. Chughtai and Prof. M. Ataur Rehman were its founding President and Secretary, respectively. Initial name of the Society was changed to the current one in the year 1997 in line with the international trends. Ever since its establishment the Society has been working to promote the sciences of biochemistry, molecular biology and biotechnology in the country. With the growth of scientific activities in general, the
Biochemists Association QAU, Islamabad
t is the Association of Biochemists comprising the current students, passed (Alumni) and teachers (serving or retired) to have strong professional, educational and social terms to promote Science and Scientific Culture. It is also meant to honor and recognize the achievements of the members.Founded by department of biochemistry QAU islamabad ,registered on 18th march 2011 and innuagrated on 2nd june 2011.
Our Department has produced a number of leading researchers and analysts, performing their role in different Sectors and we are interacting with them to fill the gap and to provide a bridge between our Ex-students and Present students by providing important and latest information and chronology of all major areas of Biochemistry/Molecular Biology in the country and all over the world. To establish BAQI as an integral part of the QAU structure and to make it a valuable instrument in this important era of challenging world. We have: Maintain liaison with all ex students (Alumni), present students and teachers (serving and retired).
