The Biochemical Society is launching its new online training portal on 23 October, to host online courses and material to complement our events programme.
The first online training course will be R for Biochemists 101, starting on 23 October 2017 with five interactive modules designed to equip early career researchers with the information, tools and techniques to use R.
The course is already full, but you can register your interest for the next run here
“The launch of our new online portal is opening up some very exciting new training opportunities for our membership and others. It will enable many more bioscientists to engage with our training programme by creating an online learning community that can be accessed globally. The flexible nature of the online courses will ensure accessibility by allowing people to learn at their own pace and at the times that suit them. We hope that people who may be unable to attend face-to-face training will now have a chance to learn with us online instead. The portal will offer courses for all sectors and all career stages. I think this marks the beginning of a new and exciting era for the training and education activity of the Society.”
