The annual symposium of SFBBM (Swedish Society for Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology founded in 1967) aims to play a decisive role for progress and networking of especially younger Swedish Life Scientists. During two days, we will provide the opportunity to newly appointed assistant professors and homecoming postdocs to give talks at the same symposium as outstanding scientists of highest international standard. In addition, the awardee of the The Svedberg prize holds the award lecture. The awardee is selected among scientists below 40 years of age and active in Sweden in the field of molecular biology. Together, it is a vibrant high quality symposium in molecular biosciences.

The scope of the 2015 symposium is to reflect the most important trends in biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology as of today. The program for 2015 is clearly of the highest international quality. The invited keynote speakers are internationally renowned top scientists. In addition, the awardee of the The Svedberg prize holds the award lecture. The awardee is selected among scientists below 40 years of age and active in Sweden in the field of molecular biology.

Topics cover protein structures, enzymology, biophysical measurements, kinetics, immunology, thermodynamics, biotechnology, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, fluorescence, NMR spectroscopy, crystallography, membrane proteins.
