UCL was founded in 1826 to open up university education in England to those who had been excluded from it. In 1878, it became the first university in England to admit women students on equal terms with men.

 

Academic excellence and conducting research that addresses real-world problems inform our ethos to this day and our plans for the future.

The Biochemical Society’s Twitter and blogging policy

Focused Meetings, Workshops and Annual Symposia

The Biochemical Society encourages the discussion of its conferences via Twitter, Facebook and similar social networks.  In order to promote discussion and the exchange of information, delegates who wish to tweet are asked to use the Biochemical Society hashtag:

 

#biochemsoc

 

Speakers will be made aware of this policy, and have the right to ask delegates not to disseminate their research via the Internet. If a Speaker makes this request, delegates are asked not to discuss the relevant work in this way. Delegates are respectfully asked to refrain from communicating using mobile devices whilst lectures are in progress.
