Mission and Vision
Main aims of the Società Italiana di Biochimica e Biologia Molecolare (SIB, Italian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) are to promote Research and Education in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Italy (with particular attention to their molecular applications in Medicine, Nutrition, Environment, Industry), to disseminate scientific results to a non-specialist public, and to pursue scientific collaborations among Italian laboratories and with foreign institutions. SIB is pushing the growth and advancement of biochemistry and molecular biology by organizing meetings, workshops and courses, and by providing fellowships to and awards to young investigators.
The SIB has been established on 28th June 1951 with the former name of Italian Society of Biological Chemistry. From 1993 it has been recognized as a non-profit Association and from 1999 its name has changed to Italian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SIB). SIB is a Member of the following International Associations:
SIB joined FEBS in 1964.
SIB holds an annual National Congress. With the aim of advocating the major role of the Biochemistry in the modern life sciences, from 2014 the SIB National Congress is being included every two years in the biennial meeting of the Italian Federation of Life Sciences (FISV).
Meetings on specific topics are also held by members engaged in the SIB thematic divisions (SIB groups).
Thanks to a specific grant program, SIB supports its Junior Members with visiting fellows as well as in attending national and international conferences. Junior members can also apply to the FEBS initiatives
Every year, two monetary prizes are conferred to a deserving young researcher (“SIB Medal“ Award) and for the best publication of the year to an early career stage investigator (the “Heritage Pride” Award).
A twice-monthly newsletter is sent to all members. It is also web available.
