Christchurch, New Zealand
22 – 25 November 2021

He aha te kai ō te rangatira? He kōrero, he kōrero, he kōrero.
What is the food of the leader? It is knowledge, it is communication.

We are excited to welcome you to Christchurch, New Zealand for the 16th Congress of the Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB). Five life science Societies from New Zealand and Australia are partnering to deliver a diverse programme – from molecules to organisms, big and small.

Reflecting the breadth and depth of the five partner Societies, indicative session topics will include: computational biology; gene regulation and signal transduction; genetics and genomics; molecular basis of disease; molecular evolution; molecular microbiology; plant biology and biochemistry; and proteins — structure, function and engineering.

The Congress will also be preceded by a Young Scientist Programme. This will give early-career researchers the chance to exchange ideas, seek career advice from senior mentors and enjoy the mountain scenery of Arthur’s Pass National Park.

Plenary speakers will be announced in the upcoming months, so be sure to check back or join our mailing list.

See you in Christchurch!
