About BBRC

View Articles published in Biochemical and Biophysical Research CommunicationsBiochemical and Biophysical Research Communications (BBRC) is a broad scope Life Sciences journal which publishes articles in a variety of topics ranging from cancer biology to computational biology and bioinformatics. Historically, the BBRC Editorial Board has comprised eminent scientists, well respected in their field and with strong peer review publications. They have dedicated their time and energy towards the betterment of science and BBRC and won many prestigious awards in their respective fields.

BBRC Symposium

The BBRC Symposium is designed to showcase the diverse proficiencies of the Editorial Board and highlight the different areas of life science published in this journal. This year’s BBRC Symposium is organized by Editor-in-Chief Wolfgang Baumeister and Zengyi Chang, Editor for Protein Chemistry and Degradation. The symposium is jointly hosted by Peking University (morning session) and Tsinghua University (afternoon session) in Beijing, China on Friday, 1 June 2018.
