About Us



The Biochemical Society aims to inspire and engage young people in the molecular biosciences, support education from 15 years upwards, increase the public understanding of the discipline, support members with their careers and research, and influence regulatory and awarding bodies towards a challenging, exciting and relevant biology curriculum in schools.


We deliver the above through a diverse programme of events and activities: from school science websites, outreach events, studentship grants, conferences for teachers at higher education institutions, dissemination of careers information, to scientific training for PhD students and early career researchers.
