The Malaysian Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (MSBMB) was established in 1973 as a professional body representing biochemists and molecular biologists in Malaysia.  The Society aims to be a platform for Malaysian scientists to network and interact locally and internationally via a variety of activities such as conferences, seminars, workshops, special lectures and focus group meetings on matters related to biochemistry & molecular biology.  These are often organised in collaboration with universities and research institutions.     
The MSBMB is an adhering body to the Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB) and The International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB). Members of the MSBMB are therefore eligible to apply for awards and fellowships managed by these 2 international bodies.
