The Mexican Society of Biochemistry (Sociedad Mexicana de Bioquímica, A.C.; SMB) was founded in 1957 by 14 enthusiastic scientists at the down of their research work in Biochemistry in México. Our society is a non-profit, scientific professional society formed by professional scientists and graduate students. Our Society includes 848 scientists whose work and duties are related to biochemistry. The vast majority are part of scientific institutes, research centers, Ph. D. schools from across the country, and some members from abroad. We aim to promote communication of the scientific work of our members by organizing meetings and seminars on the state-of-the-art in biochemical topics. Our National Congress, which gathers around 1500 members every other year for a whole week is packed with up-to-date symposia and seminars, is one of the most important activities of the SMB. Along with this, the SMB has a solid commitment to teaching science, particularly Biochemistry, to promote science literacy and the formation of New Mexican researchers.
