The Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology unites biochemists and molecular biologists from around Australia. The Society was established in 1955 as the Australian Biochemical Society. It underwent a name change to incorporate molecular biology in 1990. ASBMB is devoted to promoting research, new developments and education in biochemistry and molecular biology. It achieves this in several ways, as described below.

ASBMB coordinates the national scientific conference ComBio, run in conjunction with other societies. The program always features prominent international speakers alongside a range of high calibre Australian presenters. Meeting themes cover a wide range of topics to appeal across the spectrum of interests of biochemists and molecular biologists.

At ComBio, young scientists are given the vital opportunity to present their work, and all delegates benefit from networking during scientific and social events.
