IUBMB Mission Statement

IUBMB seeks to advance the international molecular life sciences community by:

  • Promoting interactions across the diversity of endeavours in the molecular life sciences
  • Creating networks that transcend barriers of ethnicity, culture, gender and economic status
  • Creating pathways for young scientists to fulfil their potential
  • Providing evidence-based advice on public policy
  • Promoting the values, standards and ethics of science and the free and unhampered movement of scientists of all nations.
