GBM Fall Conference 2022

The biennial international fall conference of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM e.V.) will take place from September 14th to 16th 2022, at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. With this congress, GBM will bring together a wide range of researchers from Germany and from across the globe to explore ‘The Molecular Basis of Life’.

The congress will cover the entire spectrum of molecular biosciences with topics on

• Biomolecules and their assemblies: from structure and dynamics to function
• Multiscale biochemistry of membranes and membrane proteins
• Energy for life - principles and diversity of biological energy conversion
• Biophysical chemistry and cell biology of interfaces and functional phase separation
• Computational biophysics and biology
• Imaging molecules of life
• New technologies for molecules in Life Sciences
• Cell biology meets systems and synthetic biology
• Signal transduction and diseases
• Structure-function-relationships regulating signaling events
• Supramolecular chemistry on proteins

As evident from this list of topics, not only protein-protein interactions are in the focus of the congress, but importantly the underlying dynamics that shape the interactions, networks and communication pathways.

The goal of this conference is to bring together leading experts, students, young investigators and industry representatives to address recent developments and insights into the molecular basis of life and their consequences.

During the conference prestigious awards including the Otto Warburg Medal and the Fritz Lipman Lecture will be given and special keynote lectures will highlight the main topics of the conference.

About GBM:
With about 5000 members from institutes of higher education, research centers and industry the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) is the leading body of bioscience experts in Germany. The GBM can look back on a long history reaching back to the nineteenth century. Its work focuses on the molecular biosciences in all its manifestations like biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular medicine.
The GBM hosts scientific meetings and conferences including the annual Mosbacher Kolloquium, the biennial GBM fall conference and the GBM study group conferences. It supports students and the next generation of scientists, confers awards and honors and takes part in trade fairs and conferences.
The international GBM meetings are a platform for sharing information on the latest developments in molecular biosciences with leading experts on the represented sectors.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
