Portuguese Biochemical Society

Welcome to the SPB Homepage

Our Vision


Promote teaching, learning and research on biochemistry in Portugal and abroad, as well as to stimulate scientific enlightenment in this field of knowledge;

Bring together all Portuguese or foreign citizens interested in biochemistry from a pedagogic, cultural and scientific point of view; this society is dynamic and flexible, as it allows its members to create interest groups or autonomous affiliated societies;

Sponsor scientific meetings accordant to SPB's goals, as well as the National Congress of Biochemistry, which presently takes place every two years;

Award studentships to young scientists or undergraduate students to defray part of the costs of participation in meetings abroad or in the National Congress of Biochemistry;

Promote the scientific exchange with its international partners (member of the FEBS Council and IUBMB council, as well as associate of PABMB, IUPAB and EBSA).
