ASBMB Meeting 2020

The Australian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s 2020 meeting was held online from 29–30 September 2020 as an Education Symposium and Research Symposium. Videos of the ASBMB 2020 talks are available to view online.

FAOBMB Congress 2021

In 2021, the ASBMB participated in the 16th Congress of the FAOBMB (Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists) hosted online in Christchurch, New Zealand, from 22–25 November 2021. Five life science societies from New Zealand and Australia partnered to deliver a diverse program.


ASBMB coordinates the biennial national scientific conference ComBio, run in conjunction with other societies. Programs feature prominent international speakers alongside a range of high calibre Australian presenters. Meeting themes cover a wide range of topics to appeal across the spectrum of interests of biochemists and molecular biologists. The next ComBio meeting is ComBio2022 to be held on 27–30 September 2022 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). ComBio in Melbourne in the spring of 2022 should be a must for all.

Other Meetings

Beginning with ASBMB 2019, ASBMB also hosts a new style of biennial Society meetings that will be interspersed with ComBio meetings.
