IUBMB has established the concept of promoting and sponsoring Advanced Schools in Asia, Africa and Central/South America. Advanced training of Ph.D. students and young postdocs in the field of biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology is at the basis of a sustained scientific development in these areas. Europe has realized such a goal with the institution of the Spetses Schools, an already classical Institution that has contributed to a high degree to the scientific development of basic biological sciences in Europe. The goal of this project is to offer similar opportunities to young scientists working outside Europe, North America, Australia and Japan.
Organizers have to complete the appropriate IUBMB Application Form, which can be retrieved from the download area of the IUBMB homepage. They should consider gender as well as science and society issues in establishing scientific programs. They are also encouraged applying to other funding organizations that support similar activities. Finally, they are obliged to use the IUBMB logo and quote the activity as an “IUBMB Advanced School” in all printed and electronic materials.
A report should be sent to the Liaison Member for Congresses and Conferences and to the Treasurer no later than three months after the conclusion of the Advanced School.
The report should include: a) the detailed scientific program, b) a list (including nationality) of the young scientists and lecturers who participated & c) the detailed budget.
should be sent to the Liaison Member for IUBMB Congresses and Conferences
