About Us



The Biochemical Society aims to inspire and engage young people in the molecular biosciences, increase the public understanding of the discipline, encourage the uptake of biochemistry by post-16 students, 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.
