Online Training


As well as our programme of face to face training events, the Biochemical Society also offers online training, enabling users to learn at their own pace and contribute to their professional development. Our courses include videos, interactive exercises and opportunities to interact with experts from academia and industry.


Coming soon


R for Biochemists 101      

Starting on 20 May 2019



  • Using Technology for Effective Teaching in Higher Education (launching Autumn 2019) is aimed at anyone teaching or supporting teaching in bioscience at Higher Education, from early career to experienced lecturers, interested in embedding relevant technology in their practice to improve students’ learning and engagement.  Email us here to register your interest

  • Introduction to public engagement and science policy – (launching Autumn/Winter 2019) –In this course we will explore how the molecular biosciences can contribute to UK policy along with methods that you can use to engage the public. This course is suitable for early to late career bioscientists.  Email us here to register your interest

Proposing Your Biochemical Society Training Event or Course



We welcome applications from early-career and established scientists to run face-to-face or online training events across the UK.

Topics can cover any area of molecular bioscience. We particularly welcome applications in the following areas:

  • Bioinformatics
  • Data visualisation
  • Enzymology
  • Experimental design
  • Metabolic flux
  • Protein modelling

Further information on each topic can be found here.


Benefits of running a workshop with us include:

  • Funding, full secretariat and marketing support for approved training events 
  • Sharing your skills and expertise to help support the next generation of biochemists
  • Increasing your visibility in the molecular bioscience community
  • Gaining valuable experience to support your career development in teaching and learning
  • Supporting your application for HEA Fellowship

Find out more about how to organize a training event though our infographic.


Proposals are considered four times a year, the next deadline is: 


  • 1 May 2019

Note: Face-to-face training events must be based in the UK or Republic of Ireland. 

Feedback from organisers

 “It is important to us that we make sure we can pass on our knowledge and understanding to the next generation of researchers. We’ve really enjoyed working with the Biochemical Society to provide our courses in Quantitative Proteomics. The support from the meetings staff, the advertising channels and the all-round enthusiasm from the Society for such courses make our role as organisers and presenters so much easier. Our job is to concentrate on the delivery of excellent science training; the rest is looked after.”

Rob Beynon, programme coordinator of the Quantitative Proteomics training event

 “It was very interesting to see the variety of research that participants work on, and their strong interest in cutting-edge bioinformatics applications. They were a fantastic and hard working group of delegates, and it was really rewarding to work with them.”

Luciane Vieira de Mello, programme coordinator of the Protein Modelling training event
