Would you like to champion your specialism and engage with the scientific community? Get involved in one of our Theme Panels!


Members of each of the Theme Panels meet at least twice a year to put forward ideas for conferences, consider proposals from within their field of expertise and to highlight to the Meetings Board areas of hot science that should be considered for inclusion in the conferences programme. The Theme Panels also develop interdisciplinary activities and collaborate with appropriate sister societies.


If you have an idea for a conference, and wish to have an informal discussion with a member of a Theme Panel or Research Area, you are encouraged to contact that member.


The Biochemical Society is seeking nominations (including self-nominations) for well-established, highly-active research scientists to join our Theme Panels. If you would like to put yourself or a colleague forward for membership of one of the Theme Panels, please complete the nomination form




The Basic Bioscience Theme Panel consists of six Research Areas listed below.
