Background to FASBMB:

The Federation of African Societies of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (FASBMB) aims to bring together African biochemists/molecular biologists through their national associations.During the founding of the Federation in 1996 in Nairobi, Professor Makawiti, in his welcome speech said, "this conference comes at a time when resources for scientific research are becoming extremely scarce, personnel training and equipment for institutional research capacity building prohibitively expensive". Therefore, the task for the Federation must be to move to find solutions to the problem of diminishing research and training resources.

To all adhering bodies:
