Who and what is MoBBEL?
MoBBЕL was established as a registered association in 1984 by Tübingen biochemists. Its purpose is to serve as a means for fellow colleagues sharing a common past to stay in touch. Ever since the association was set up, the number of people who have received a Biochemistry degree at the Schnarrenberg has roughly doubled. Therefore, the previously tight contact between the members of the group has inevitably become harder to keep, especially between the different generations of students. Yet, another novelty from the last couple of years is that even the traditionally good career prospects for biochemists once had are not so straightforward anymore.
That is why MoBBEL. is well suited to meet the needs of Tübingen biochemists of all ages. On the one hand, future activities organized by the alumni association are aimed at satisfying the interests of the new generation of academics. On the other hand, MoBBEL facilitates the exchange between already established biochemists.
What does MoBBЕL offer?
