BBA – at the heart of the Biochemistry community

Our nine topical BBA titles feature some of the most dynamic research taking place in Biochemistry today. But, we understand that financial and time pressures mean your path to publication is rarely an easy one.

Our editors and publishers are passionate about finding ways we can support you as you work towards your next paper. Each year, we provide a range of sponsorships and support, from grants to help you attend important conferences in your field, to awards recognizing and rewarding the value of your contributions. On this page, we highlight just some of the activities taking place to nurture Biochemistry researchers and help increase scientific knowledge in the field.

Are you organizing an event related to one of the fields represented by our BBA titles? We’re always looking for new sponsorship opportunities and would love to hear from you – please contact BBA Publisher George Woodward at g.woodward@elsevier.com

The Otto Warburg Medal

Otto Warburg medalAs one of the most highly esteemed science awards in Germany, the Otto Warburg Medal honors outstanding, internationally recognized results in fundamental biochemical and molecular biological research.

It has been conferred by the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) since 1963 and since 2012, Elsevier and BBA have been the exclusive sponsors of this medal, with a cash prize to support continued research by the awardees.
