SIBioC Presentation

  1. 2. Italian Society of Clinical Biochemistry and Clinical Molecular Biology The Italian Society of Clinical Biochemistry and Clinical Molecular Biology (SIBioC) was founded in 1968 with the following mission: • bring together scientists throughout the fields of clinical biochemistry and clinical molecular biology; • enhance its members’ scientific knowledge and professional expertise; • promote scientific and technical publications in the field; • cooperate with other scientific societies world-wide; • organise local, national, and international meetings and seminars. Full membership is open to anyone with a university degree in medicine and surgery, chemistry, industrial chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry and technology, pharmacy, veterinary medicine and biological science, as well as technicians and any others active in the field of the clinical biochemistry
