International Symposium on Bioorganometallic Chemistry


It is our great pleasure to invite you to the International Symposium on Bioorganometallic Chemistry 2023 (ISBOMC′23), which will take place at Technische Universität Braunschweig from 18-21 September 2023.

The meeting is intended to provide a forum for all aspects of bioorganometallic chemistry. Renowned speakers as well as emerging early career researchers will contribute to the conference and provide an exciting program with the latest research results from the field of bioorganometallic chemistry.

ISBOMC’23 will be the next event in a series of meetings, which started in Paris in 2002 and continued in Zurich, Milan, Missoula, Bochum, Toronto, Vienna, Moscow, York, where the to date last “traditional” in-person ISBOMC had been held in 2019, followed by the first online conference in 2021 (digital ISBOMC’21, Braunschweig) and the “First International Symposium on Bioorganometallic Chemistry – 20 years after” in Paris in 2022.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Braunschweig in September 2023!

Program and Speakers

The program will cover all aspects of bioorganometallic chemistry and aims to bring together colleagues working at the interface of organometallic chemistry and biology, including biocatalysis, medicinal chemistry, organometallic bioligand synthesis, and related areas (e.g. computational chemistry, metallomics, bioconformational analysis).

The conference program is under construction. The tentative start of the scientific program is on September 18 2023 at 14:00 and the tentative end is on September 21 2023 at 16:00
