Women in Biochemistry 2013 celebrates 100 years since the first female members joined the Society.
Early in 2012 the Society undertook a survey concerning a number of issues surrounding women in science including awareness and value of our current activities and the working life of a female researcher.
One of the main themes running through the responses was the challenge that scientists face balancing a career and having a family and this has shaped some of our activities for the year including our newly launched Stay Connected Bursary scheme.
