We are pleased to announce that the Biochemical Society has joined the Science Council as a full member organization. This was ratified at the Science Council Annual General Meeting held on 14 June 2016.
Biochemistry and molecular biology have previously been underrepresented within the Science Council, so the Society’s membership will help improve representation of scientists across sectors and disciplines within the Council.
“The Science Council values the contribution that all scientists make across the profession and so are delighted that we can include biochemists and other molecular biologists in those we represent through our members,” said Belinda Phipps; CEO, Science Council.
We will be working towards offering Science Council registration to our members, through co-licensing with the Royal Society of Biology.
“The Biochemical Society is committed to supporting our subject, membership and greater community and view membership of the Science Council as a key component of progressing our objectives”, commented Professor Stephen Busby FRS; Chair, Executive Committee of the Biochemical Society.
