Ever since its establishment, the Society has been working to promote the sciences of biochemistry, molecular biology, and biotechnology in the country. With the growth of scientific activities in general, the activity in biochemical sciences has also grown with an increased number of scientists working in this field in the country.

The Society holds its biennial science conferences at different major venues of the country. These conferences are well attended by scientists from all over the country and from abroad. The Society also supports symposia, seminars, and other events organized by the individual institutions and is represented on the international fora like the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) and the Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB). The Society publishes the Pakistan Journal of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology a quarterly research journal.
