The Molecular, Biological and Multi-Scale Communications Technical Committee, abbreviated as MBMC-TC, is a technical committee of the IEEE Communications Society.

The MBMC-TC aims to foster the emerging area of molecular, biological and multi-scale communications by providing its members with a forum to conduct technical discussions and interactions. MBMC-TC members come from diverse disciplines, including those within the traditional IEEE ComSoc and those that are typically considered outside the IEEE ComSoc, such as those in molecular and cell biology, biological engineering, and medicine. In order to fulfill the objective, the MBMC-TC organizes special sessions and tutorials in leading conferences. The MBMC-TC also organizes special journal issues and holds dedicated topical meetings, symposia, workshops and other events to identify innovative research issues and facilitate collaboration among its members. The MBMC-TC works closely with relevant societies within and outside IEEE. The MBMC-TC also coordinates with the IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological, Multiscale Communications (T-MBMC) and helps its editorial activities. The MBMC-TC has also coordinated with the IEEE Standards Association Working Group on Nanoscale and Molecular Communications to transfer technologies developed in the community to industry, e.g., contributing to the 1906.1-2015 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Nanoscale and Molecular Communication Framework.
