Our training activities allow participants to gain knowledge and skills in key areas of molecular bioscience and provide the opportunity to ask questions and discuss challenges with experts.

The Biochemical Society offers a programme of face-to-face and online training courses, enabling users to learn at their own pace and contribute to their professional development.

We welcome training proposals from any member of the scientific community, and these are considered by the Training Theme Panel and the relevant Research Areas three times a year.

Currently, our training activities encompass in-person training courses, over one or multiple days and online training courses.

If you have an idea for a training activity and would like some feedback and support with your proposal, please make a pre-submission enquiry using a short online form.

Please note that at least one member of the Scientific Programme Committee (the organisers of the activity, aside from Biochemical Society staff) must be a member of the Biochemical Society.
