  • To establish means by which biochemistry could be utilized for the improvement of the socio-economic and health conditions of the country.


The membership of the organization is open to all persons holding at least a bachelor's degree in biochemistry, chemistry, biology, pharmacy, medicine, and other related disciplines as well as educators who are actively teaching and researching about biochemistry and related fields.

The organization also represents the Philippines in the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB; formerly IUB).


The organization sponsors annual conventions, seminars, workshops on concepts and principles, advances, laboratory techniques, teaching techniques, and aids, applications of biochemistry, and molecular biology in different parts of the country.
