About SBC

The Society of Biological Chemists (India) founded in 1930, with its Headquarters at IISc Bangalore, is one of the oldest scientific societies of India. The Society played a crucial role during the second world war period by advising the Government on the utilization of indigenous biomaterials as food substitutes, drugs and tonics, on the industrial and agricultural waste utilization and on management of water resources. The other areas of vital interest to the Society in the early years were nutrition, proteins, enzymes, applied microbiology, preventive medicines and the development of high-quality proteins from indigenous plant sources.

SBC(I) has more than 3700 life members and is a major forum which brings together researchers from all areas of biological chemistry. One of the major objectives of the Society is to coordinate the work of biological chemists in different parts of India and to hold meetings and symposia for discussions on important topics of scientific and technical interest. The annual meetings of the society are attended by a large number of students and scientists engaged in basic and translational research. This year we expect about 600 delegates including about 400 students and 200 national and international scientists. More information about SBC is available at
