Due to the ongoing pandemic the Organizing Committee and the ISBOMC International Advisory Board have decided to postpone the International Symposium on Bioorganometallic Chemistry 2021 (ISBOMC21). The next in-person ISBOMC will take place in 2023.
As a replacement and in order to keep the bioorganometallic scientific community connected and active, there will be three online events during 2021 (digital ISBOMC21). The three webinars are open to the whole scientific community in bioorganometallic chemistry and will feature invited speakers from all over the world. In addition to high-profile speakers with longstanding experience in the field, special attention is given to early career researchers. Please register at the bottom of this website.
