Training

Our training events and courses 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.

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. 

We welcome proposals for face-to-face or online training events. Find out more >

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 AdvanceHE Fellowship
  • Building networks with potentially new collaborators

*AdvanceHE Fellowship: For the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF), these are reflected and are expressed in the Dimensions of Professional Practice. For detailed explanation, please click here. Running a workshop will help colleagues working towards various levels of fellowship of the AdvancedHE. Running a workshop is evidence of the A1 to A4, K1, K4 and potentially V3.

Proposals are considered four times a year, the next deadline is: 26 October 2020

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.”
