About Us

The Society of Biological Chemists (SBC), India is one of the oldest scientific fraternities in India. The SBC(I) has more than 4000 members at present, including senior scientists in the field of life sciences, young researchers and students. SBC(I) headquarter is at IISc, Bangalore. The society also includes large numbers of local chapters across the country organizing local activities like seminars/workshops/conferences. Traditionally, the most significant activity of SBC(I) is its annual meeting hosted by different research labs/universities across the country.

This year's annual meeting will be the 90th event of the society. This 90th annual meeting under the theme “Metabolism to Drug Discovery: Where Chemistry and Biology Unite” will be organized by Amity University Haryana (AUH) between 16th and 19th December 2021. Amity University is one of the top private universities in India with several national and global campuses spread across all continents providing quality education close to 2 lac students. The Manesar (Gurugram), Haryana campus is situated on 110 acres of lush green valley amongst Aravalli hills.

The Amity Institute of Biotechnology (AIB), and Amity Institute of Integrative Sciences and Health (AIISH) are working hand in hand to successfully organize this year’s annual meeting. Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will be held entirely on a virtual platform. It is unfortunate that the attendees will miss the visit to the beautiful green campus of AUH, however, the virtual platform will attempt to provide you with a similar experience. The halls and lobbies of the virtual platform will be customised to provide the attendees a feeling of visiting the AUH.
