CSMB Secretary James Davie participates in an IUBMB meeting in Kuala Lumpur

IUBMB executive committee

James Davie attended a meeting of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biochemistry (IUBMB), which took place August 19-22 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  He brought his knowledge of CSMB to meetings of the IUBMB executive committee in his capacity as IUBMB General Secretary.

One of my IUBMB activities will be to link Trainee Committees that are active in the societies affiliated with IUBMB. So this is an international effort. The goal is to help establish a trainee committee to those societies that do not have one, and second see if we can form a IUBMB international trainee committee.

-James Davie

The CSMB executive and trainee committees look forward to working with the CSMB to promote the careers of trainees around the world.

His studies revealed novel genes and proteins implicated in the regulation of blood cell production opening new avenues in molecular hematology and contributing insight into blood diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma for which improved therapies are urgently needed.
