Proposing Your Biochemical Society Training Event or Course

Training CourseWe 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

Feedback from organizers

“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, organizer 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, organizer of the Protein Modelling training event

Proposals are considered four times a year, the next deadlines are: 

  • 1 May
  • 13 August
  • 5 November

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