War in Ukraine statement
CSBMB, led by Prof. RNDr. Libor Grubhoffer, CSc., Hon.D.Sc., has strongly condemned the barbarian act of the tyrant and war
criminal Putin who decided to conquer Ukraine, a sovereign democratic state of independent citizens. The situation
in Ukraine is very dramatic and its consequences are tragic for the whole country but also for all our democratic world. The Society
would like to ask you to help colleagues from Ukrainian universities and research institutes but potentially also to
colleagues from Russia who are not silent and protest against the crimes of their sick president with an admirable bravery.
The whole announcement of the CSBMB chairman regarding the war in Ukraine can be found in the attached letter (available only in Czech).
New CSBMB Board Committee
Starting on 30th August 2021, the new CSBMB board committee for the 2021-2025 election period
has begun its work on the occasion of an establishing meeting held on that day. We sincerely believe that all the current
members of the Society will benefit from the committee activities. If you want to become a member of the Society as well,
you can easily do so via the registration form.
Czech National Commission
We are announcing the merge of Czech National Commisson and CSBMB, z. s. committee. Czech National Commission
for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology represents the membership of the Czech Republic in International Union of Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology (IUBMB). Similar to other scientific disciplines, Czech National Commission for Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology was estabished by the Academic Council of the Czech Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. This is
because the Czech Academy of Sciences is a member institution of IUBMB (so-called 'Adhering Body') and its role is to designate
the Commission for a specific work.
The Commission closely cooperates with Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (CSBMB, z. s.) whose board members
are currently also the members of the Commission. Given that IUBMB is a member of International Council for Science (ICSU), we also receive information
about upcoming evens and efforts of this international organisation.
More information about the merge of Czech National Commisson and CSBMB, z. s. can be found in the attached letter (available only in Czech).
